Maxime Polichetti obtained his master degree in Signal and Image Processing at the Institut Polythechnique de Grenoble, in 2016. Acoustics (underwater acoustic and ultrasound) and beamforming are the main topics of his studies. In 2015, during a first internship as an engineering assistant, he proposed a learning software for sailor students to ease the understanding of the signal processing steps of active sonar.

In 2016, he joined the Creatis lab (Centre de Recherche En Acquisition et Traitement de l’Image pour la Santé). During a 6-month internship, he studied the ability to increase the frame rate of non-linear ultrasound images using coded excitation. This first experience in Creatis led him in October 2016 to start a PhD in collaboration with the LabTau. This PhD subject is focused on the 3D-spatio-temporal monitoring of cavitation using ultrasound imaging. Advanced passive beamforming methods are under his investigations. The goal of such a project would be to provide a robust monitoring tool to perform guidance during extracorporeal ultrasound thrombolysis.
