As of October 2019, I am Post-Doctoral Reseatch Fellow at University of Bologna, where I do research on the development and personalization of neuro-musculoskeletal (NMS) models to investigate muscular disorders. In addition, I am part of the Mobilise-D project ( that aims to qualify and to regulate the use of wearable sensors to extract digital mobility outcomes. As so, I am working with the regulatory agencies (e.g. EMA and FDA) to facilitate the qualifcation process.


In March 2014, after a period of study abroad (within the Erasmus project scheme) at the Université de Technologie de Compiegne (Compiegne, France), I got my MSc degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Torino. After a one-year long working experience as Clinical Product Specialist, I left Italy and flew to Australia to start a PhD programme at Griffith University (Gold Coast, Australia) on the development and personalization of NMS models of children with cerebral palsy and typically developing paediatric populations, under the supervision of Prof. David Lloyd. In January 2020, I was awarded with a PhD degree in Musculoskeletal modelling.

Research activity

During my PhD, I had the opportunity to show my work at several international conferences: Australasian Biomechanics Conference (ABC10, Melbourne, Australia. 2016), International Society of Biomechanics Congress (ISB2017, Brisbane, Australia; ISB-ASB 2019, Calgary, Canada), World Congress of Biomechanics (WCB2018, Dublin, Ireland).

Teaching and mentoring experience

As a PhD candidate I had the chance to teach. I have been Academic Tutor for the Bioinstrumentation, Introductory Biomechanics and Musculoskeletal Biomechanics courses. I have also supervised few Masters' students during their thesis work.

Other activities

After graduating, I worked as Clinical Product Specialist at Sanitex SPA, where I was in charge of providing clinical and technical support on diagnostic and interventional tools in the catheterization laboratories of the major hospitals in Piemonte, Liguria and Valle d'Aosta.
