Caterina Monini received her M.Sc. degree in Particle Physics from the "University of Ferrara" (Italy) in 2011, and earned the Ph.D. degree from the "Université Grenoble Alpes" in 2014 for her work on the single top s-channel cross section measurement with the ATLAS detector (CERN). She then decided to focus on the medical applications of particle physics and joined the IP2I in Lyon to carry out research on hadrontherapy. She worked for 5 years on biophysical modeling to predict the biological effects of ionizing radiation and to investigate the differential effect of swift ions with respect to photons. A theoretical approach based on Monte Carlo simulations and on a statistical framework developed by the IP2I team was supported by radiobiology experiments performed in collaboration with biologists and engineers. Caterina lectured and taught lab and tutorial classes in the school of engineering Phelma (Grenoble) and "Université Claude Bernard" (Lyon) ; she also supervised several master students.
Since march 2020, she is "Chef de projet" of the RHU Perfuse (Personalized Focused Ultrasound Surgery of Localized Prostate Cancer) and works as well on the per-operative perfusion measurement with Rémi Souchon.
