I am a Reader in Bioengineering at the School of Mechanical and Design Engineering and director of the Zeiss Global Centre. Formerly, I worked at the School as a Senior Lecturer (2015-2018), Lecturer (2013-2015) and Research Associate (2012-2013). I received a PhD in Bioengineering in 2012 from the University of Portsmouth and a 5-year MSc in Mechanical Engineering in 2008 from the University of Bologna.

Research Interests

My research interest include multi-dimensional/modal X-ray Computed Tomography (XCT), correlative microscopy and digital volume correlation (DVC) of biological tissues and biomaterials, such as 3D-printed implants and electrospun scaffolds for tissue engineering.
