I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Computational Science Lab at the University of Amsterdam. I studied Mathematics at Padua University for my BSc and Leiden University for my MSc. I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Sheffield with a thesis on “Mathematical and Computational Modelling of Arterial Mechanobiology: Application to Cerebral Vasospasm”. Before joining the University of Amsterdam, I held a postdoc position at the Department of Cardiovascular Disease at the University of Sheffield, working within the INSIGNEO Institue for in silico Medicine and the SANO Centre for Computational Personalized Medicine.

My main research interest is computational multi-scale modelling of the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular systems. I developed a mechanobiologically motivated model of cerebral vasospasm to help improve treatment selection. I also worked on numerical methods for medical image processing and 3D geometry reconstruction, as well as contribute to the development of a digital phantom of coronary arteries to standardise validation of computational models of coronary physiology.

I am also part of the EDITH project, a EU-funded consortium to foster the adoption of digital twins in healthcare and thus realise true personalised medicine, and the GEMINI project for the development of digital twins for the personalised treatment of ischemic and haemorrhagic stroke.
