After graduating at Politecnico di Milano (Milan, Italy) in 2006, I moved to London at UCL & Great Ormond Street Hospital in 2008 where I started my PhD project in Biomedical Engineeringg under the supervision of Prof Philipp Bonhoeffer, Prof. Andrew M. Taylor and Dr. Silvia Schievano. During my PhD project I had the chance to conduct multidisciplinary research. In addition, I had the possibility of an internship at Medtronic Inc (Mounds View, Minnesota, USA).
In 2012, I completed my PhD and continued to work as a post-doc research fellow at UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science. I currently collaborate with several research groups within UCL, other academic centres in Europe and US and industry for simulation software development and medical devices.

Research Summary

Over the last decade, my research has been mainly focused on the development and use of patient-specific computational models in the cardiovascular field.
I have been developing models for finite element and computational fluid dynamics analyses which incorporated 3d models of patients anatomies as reconstructed from medical images. I have also acquired experience of validation of such computational models and their translation towards a clinical use.

Teaching Summary

Since 2007, I have been supervising over ten Master students during the completion of their Master Thesis Projet. From 2013, I have assisted Dr Schievano in her teaching activities fo Mechanics of deformable bodies.
