Education and Academic Background

Alexia Rossi qualified from Medical School of University of Trieste in 20014. She was awarded her certificate of completion of specialty training in Diagnostic Imaging in 2008. She spent the next four years at the Thoraxcentre/Erasmus MC University Medical Centre Rotterdam (the  Netherlands) where she received her PhD in 2013 entitled “Quantification in non-invasive cardiac imaging: CT and MR”.

In April 2014, she was awarded a Training Grant by the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) which gave her the opportunity to move to London. In London she worked as a post-doctoral clinical research fellow at the Centre for Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging, William Harvey Research Institute (WHRI) at the Barts Heart Centre for three years.

Since May 2017, she has been working as assistant professor in Diagnostic Imaging and Radiotherapy at Humanitas University.

Scientific and Research Interests

Her main clinical and academic interests are to broaden applications of four- dimensional CT in clinical practice and to investigate novel non-invasive imaging tests to detect cardiovascular disease. Future research projects will include radiomics and artificial intelligence applied to the  cardiovascular field.

Dr. Alexia Rossi is author or co-author of 58 scientific manuscripts cited in PubMed. She has a h-index of 18 (Scopus).
