Luca was born and raised in Germany and completed a DIAB (German Abitur and high school diploma) at the German International School New York after moving to the United States. He is in the last year of his undergraduate degree with a Major in Physics and a Minor in Computer Science at McGill University. Luca joined Enger Lab in the first year of his undergraduate studies in 2018 and has been working on deep learning-based medical image analysis and treatment planning optimization.
Luca is developing a deep learning-based, multi-modal treatment outcome prediction model for endorectal cancer patients. The project combines radiomics with deep learning to increase prediction accuracy, increase efficiency, and eliminate human error to enable patient-specific treatment selection.
