After my Master degree studies in Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, I joined the Cardiorespiratory Unit of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children & UCL Institute of Child Health 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. I was appointed as a Lecturer to UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science in March 2013 and promoted to Senior Lecturer in October of the same year and to Reader in October 2016. Since August 2011, I have been the Lead for the Centre for Clinical Cardiovascular Engineering at UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.
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 cardiovascular disease and treatments; development of computational methods to accelerate biomedical product development process and enhance safety in first-in-man procedures.
Since 2004, I have been a project supervisor for MEng international students. I am a research supervisor for PhD /MD students (4 to completion) and post-doc fellows, both clinicians and engineers.
Since 2013, I lecture in 1st and 2nd year undergraduate courses for the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
