Riccardo Lattanzi, Associate Professor of Radiology, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Riccardo Lattanzi is an Associate Professor of Radiology, Electrical and Computer Engineering at the New York University. He also serves as the Director of training for the Center for Advanced Imaging Innovation and Research (CAI2R). His research work lies at the boundary between physics, engineering and medicine. He investigates fundamental principles involving the interactions of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields with biological tissue in order to develop new techniques and technologies improve the diagnostic power of magnetic resonance imaging. He won the ISMRM I.I. Rabi Young Investigator Award, received an NSF CAREER award, a Fulbright scholarship, was selected as an Aspen Junior Fellow of the Aspen Institute Italia, a Young Leader of the Council for the United States and Italy. Dr. Lattanzi received his laurea degree in electronic engineering from the University of Bologna, his Master of Science in electrical engineering and computer science from MIT, and his Ph.D. in medical engineering and medical physics from the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology.
