Davide Fontanarosa was awarded his PhD in Medical Physics from the University of Maastricht (the Netherlands) with a thesis on: “Evaluation of speed of sound aberration and correction for ultrasound guided radiation therapy”. In his work, he examined the impact of speed of sound aberration on quantitative ultrasound (US) imaging and proposed a possible solution for the applications in radiation therapy (RT).
Presently, he works as Senior Lecturer in the School of Clinical Sciences at the Queensland University of Technology (Brisbane, Australia). In the previous 6 years he worked as Senior Scientist at Maastro Clinic (Maastricht, the Netherlands) and at Philips Research (Eindhoven, the Netherlands). His efforts are mainly focused on research in the RT domain. His major fields of research are image guided RT (in particular using US imaging); advanced treatment planning and adaptation strategies; and palliative care for oncological patients. Previously he was manager of a research and development laboratory at the Scientific and Technical Area in Udine (Italy), where the research was mainly focused on Medical Dosimetry, Montecarlo modeling and Scientific Software programming.
