Tiziano Ronchetti is a doctoral researcher at the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the University of Basel. He received his University degree (lic. phil.-nat.) with a major in mathematics and a minor in chemistry (1997). His research interests center around medical image analysis with a particular focus on kernel methods in image registration.
Since the fall semester 2014 he has been working on his Ph.D. thesis at the University of Basel, Department for Biomedical Engineering in the Research Group of Prof. Dr. Philippe C. Cattin. The members of his doctoral committee are Prof. Dr. Selim Orgül (Faculty representative), Prof. Dr. Philippe Cattin (PhD advisor), Dr. Peter Maloca (Coreferee) and Dr. Boris Považay (External expert, Principle Investigator SNF-Myopia project). His task consists in the development of an automatic algorithm for the detection of subtle changes in the area of the human choroid, a soft tissue located in the posterior part of the eye between the retina and sclera. Significant modifications in the choroidal thickness are used in clinical applications as indicator of ocular diseases such as myopia or glaucoma. Recognizing temporal changes in the thickness of the choroid and retina at an early stage is a crucial factor in the prevention and treatment of such diseases. His project is a part of the SNF project “Characterization of choroidal changes in children and its temporal response to optical defocus”, an international cooperation with clinical partners in Asia and Europe. The persons responsible are Prof. Christoph Meier (head of the OptoLab of the BFH-TI) and the project leader Dr. Boris Považay.
