I am a Professor of Musculoskeletal Biomechanics at the Insigneo institute, University of Sheffield, UK. I have obtained my Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Bologna in 2006 and my PhD in Biomechanics at the Vienna University of Technology in 2012. After the PhD I was awarded an IEF Marie Curie Fellowship and moved to the University of Sheffield in 2013, where I became lecturer in 2015 and senior lecturer in 2019.
My research focuses on the development, calibration and validation of computational models for the prediction of bone mechanical properties and bone remodelling in preclinical and clinical applications. My research has been funded by the EU, UK research councils and local charities.
I have published more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, four book chapters and more than 170 contributions to international conferences. I am a reviewer for most journals in the field of bone, biomechanics and computational modelling. I have been member of the European Society of Biomechanics since 2007 and in the ESB council since 2018.
