Postdoctoral Research Associate
I graduated as a Biomedical Engineer from the University of Bologna in 2018 and I completed my Computer Science DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2021 under the supervision of Prof Blanca Rodriguez, Prof Alfonso Bueno-Orovio, and Dr Christopher Toepfer. During my DPhil I was a Marie-Curie Innovative Training Network fellow in the Personalised In-silico Cardiology project.
My research focuses on investigating drug action and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy through multiscale computational modelling and simulation of human ventricular electromechanical function.
