I am Professor of Biomedical Engineering at UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science, GOS Institute of Child Health & Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. After my Master degree in Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, I joined the Cardiorespiratory Unit of Great Ormond Street Hospital for a PhD programme sponsored by the British Heart Foundation. I obtained my PhD in 2008 when I was awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering/EPSRC Research Fellowship, and I was appointed as a Lecturer to UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science in March 2013. I hold an ESPRC Healthcare Technologies Challenge Award and an ERC Starting Grant. Since 2011, I have been the lead for the Centre for Clinical Cardiovascular Engineering at the Institute of Cardiovascular Science, and since 2013 I have established with two clinical colleagues the Craniofacial Research Unit at GOS Institute of Child Health.

Research Themes
Research Summary

Application of engineering methodologies to the study of patho-physiological conditions in the human body; modelling of biomedical devices, in particular toward the development of patient specific models to study disease and treatments; development of computational methods to accelerate the biomedical product development process and enhance safety in first-in-human procedures.

Teaching Summary

Since 2004, I have been a project supervisor for MEng international students. I am a research supervisor for PhD /MD students and post-doctoral fellows, both clinicians and engineers. 

Since 2013, I lecture 1st and 2nd year undergraduate students for the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
