Dr. Di Ieva’s primary research interests are in neuroanatomy, neuroimaging and computational neurosciences, focused on the application of advanced computer-based analyses in the field of the clinical neurosciences. The main aims of his researches are finding new indicators of disease (diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic biomarkers), which may be useful in the clinical setting to the benefit of patients affected by neurological and neurosurgical diseases. Dr. Di Ieva leads a translational multidisciplinary collaboration of several scientists and physicians from different disciplines, and he was the Editor and main author of an innovative textbook, the “Fractal Geometry of the Brain” (Springer, New York, 2016).

Dr. Di Ieva has organised national and international workshops and trained several registrars and post-specialisation fellows, medical and undergraduate students, PhD and post-doc candidates in several countries, including Australia, USA and Canada, in the fields of surgery, neuroanatomy, cognitive and computational neurosciences and research.
