Prof. Katia Parodi
is a member of the Cluster of Excellence MAP and W3 Professor of Experimental Physics – Medical Physics at the Faculty of Physics at LMU. Within MAP, she commits herself to establishing a Graduate School of Medical Physics and to a stronger networking of medical physics with MAP and the Munich university hospitals, but beyond that also with other national and international centers. Parodi’s research focuses on dosimetry, image-guided therapy and related detector developments as well as Monte-Carlo calculations and therapy planning for radiotherapy. She is, for instance, working on a new Compton camera for monitoring high-precision ion therapy and on ion-based tomography. Katia Parodi was born in 1975 in Genoa (Italy). In 1988 she graduated with a physics degree (diploma) at the University of Genoa. She specialized in Medical Physics and received her doctorate in 2004 at the Technical University of Dresden, followed by a research period at Harvard Medical School in Boston, USA. After moving to the Heidelberg Ion Beam Therapy Centre (HIT), Parodi qualified as a professor at Ruprecht-Karls University in Heidelberg about “Positron-Emission-Tomography for in-vivo verification of ion beam therapy – Modelling, experimental studies and clinical implementation“. Parodi is, amongst others, a member of DPG, the German Society for Medical Physics (DGMP), the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) and the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO). She was, for instance, awarded the Behnken Berger Price (2006) and the Bruce Hasegawa Young Investigator Medical Imaging Science Award of the IEEE (2009). On 02 October 2013, Katia Parodi will hold a public lecture about “Precise full breaking: Physics on the living body”, which is part of the series “Science for everybody” at Deutsches Museum, Munich.
