Irene Bassi

Irene was born in Pavia, Italy, in 1998. She received the bachelor’s degree in bioengineering and the master’s degree in bioengineering – sensor and biomedical instrumentation track – from the University of Pavia in 2020 and 2023, respectively.

She carried out her master’s thesis in Belgium, at the Interuniversity Micro-Electronics Center (IMEC) of Leuven, as part of the Erasmus+ Traineeship program. Her research aimed to develop a photoacoustic computed tomography system for breast cancer imaging, with a focus on the potential use of LEDs and a microchip-based opto-mechanical transducer as alternatives to the bulky and expensive traditional instruments, typically used in photoacoustics.

Currently, Irene is a Ph.D. student at the University of Pavia. Part of her research activity is aimed at developing an optoelectronic measurement system for the detection of milk adulteration using speckle pattern imaging combined with artificial intelligence techniques.

Beside the University, she enjoys theater, painting, and, occasionally, escaping the city by hiking in the mountains.
