Lucia Bossoni is a Project Officer for the Department of Applied Physics. In her role, she supports researchers in exploring and acquiring funding, in the writing of grant proposals, with project management and consortia coordination. She closely collaborates with the Center of Care & Cure Technology Eindhoven (C3Te). She is highly driven by innovative ideas and problem-solving. During her latest years as a researcher, Lucia focused on the characterization of the magnetic properties of the brain and its implication for neurodegenerative diseases. She combined neuro-imaging (MRI) with hard-core physics experimental techniques (Magnetometry and Magnetic Resonance) to speciate and quantify molecular iron in the brain.
I like to think out-of-the-box and challenge ideas to achieve excellence. I believe that difficult problems can be solved by a multidisciplinary approach. We have to learn to cross the divide among disciplines.
Lucia Bossoni obtained her master's degree (cum laude) in 2010 in Physical Sciences at the University of Pavia and earned her PhD in 2014 in Condensed Matter Physics (CNISM - CNR). She was a post-doctoral fellow from 2014 to 2017 at the Physics Institute of Leiden University and a Senior Researcher at the Leiden University Medical Center (Radiology Department) from 2017 to 2021. She taught and coordinated the Magnetic Resonance Phenomena course in Leiden (2018-2021) and obtained her University Teaching Qualification in 2021 (UTQ/BKO). She received a personal NWO-VENI grant (2017), an NWA Idea Generator Grant (2019), a ZonMw Netwerksubsidie (2020), and a Women in STEM grant (2021). Since December 2021 she is Project Officer at the Department of Applied Physics, at TU/e.
