RESEARCH ACTIVITY

The research activity of Elisa Magosso mainly concerns the investigation of complex physiological systems by means of mathematical models, with a double aim: i) to enhance the physiological knowledge by shedding light on the mechanisms underlying the behaviour of such systems in several physio-pathological conditions; ii) to improve the clinical practice, by exploiting the predictive capacities of the models in order to rationalize the therapeutic and rehabilitation procedures, and drugs administration.

She is also involved in biomedical signal processing, especially as to the application advanced techniques (time-frequency analysis, principal component analysis, indipendent component analysis) for the extraction of specific features from the signals, removal of artifacts, source separation.

The research activity is performed in cooperation with several research and clinical centres, both national and international.
