Samuele Papa

PhD Candidate


Samuele has a background in information engineering, computer engineering, and artificial intelligence. In 2021 he completed both an MSc (cum laude) in Computer Engineering at the University of Padova and an MSc in Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence at the Technical University of Denmark. During his studies, he focused on fundamental research in the field of Deep Learning, specifically on how to obtain useful representations of images to enable the automation of higher-level cognitive tasks.

He is now a PhD candidate under the POP-AART Lab (2021-2024), a collaboration between Elekta, the University of Amsterdam, and the Netherlands Cancer Institute. The aim of the collaboration is personalized online radiotherapy using artificial intelligence methods. The lab is supervised by Jan-Jakob Sonke and Efstratios Gavves. Samuele will focus on using deep generative models to improve the quality of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) while enforcing geometric and pathological integrity.
