Chiara Paganelli, PhD Student, Politecnico di Milano
Chiara Paganelli was born in Italy in 1987. She received her M.Sc. in Bioengineering in 2011 from Politecnico di Milano, Italy. She is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree in Bioengineering at the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria, Politecnico di Milano, under the supervision of Prof. Marco Riboldi. Her research interests include medical image analysis and processing for organ motion quantification in radiotherapy. Specifically, her PhD project is based on the validation of real time tumor tracking models based on dynamic MRI imaging. During a six-months period in Sydney (September 2014 – February 2015), she will work on the MRI-Linac program with Prof. Paul Keall, thus starting a collaboration between Politecnico di Milano and University of Sydney.
Eric Wisotsky, M.Sc. in Physics, University of Heidelberg
Eric Wisotzky graduated with a M.Sc. in Physics at the University of Heidelberg, Germany in 2014. In 2012 he finished his Bachelor thesis in real time tumor tracking at the German Cancer Research Center. His study brought him to the Fraunhofer IPK Berlin, Germany, where he wrote his Master’s thesis in CT image restoration. Due to his interest in radiation physics and cancer treatment he joined the group and will investigate the impact of temporal optimization for MLC tracking.
