Diego Ulisse Pizzagalli


Postdoctoral researcher in Computational Medicine at IRB and ICS.
Studying the complexity of the immune system by combining intravital microscopy and network theory.

Currently co-directing the IMMUNEMAP project (, which aims at enabling large-scale analysis of the immune cell migration and interaction by making available huge amount of intravital microscopy data .

I like old algorithms and their novel applications in the biomedical field.

Previous studies combined
- Electrocardiographic signals (ECG) and machine learning for the automatic detection of arrythmic and ischemic events (MSc thesis at Politecnico di Milano).
- Near infrared sensors (NIR) and ubiquitous computing for decreasing the mortality associated with the sudden infant death sindrome (SIDS).
- Low-cost sensors, ubiquitous computing and machine learning for improving the posture of office workers (Hack the City competition - Lugano).
- Social networks and real-time data mining for the monitoring of flu outbreaks.

I also work as Teaching Assistant at the faculty of informatics where I have co-founded the USI Makers association
