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 Biomedical Engineering at the Centre for Cardiovascular Imaging, UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science.
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.
