Department of Industrial Engineering

Academic discipline: ING-IND/34 Industrial Bioengineering


Keywords: biomechanics in silico medicine

I had a long and interesting career, during which I worked on many different things. Probably the three topics I worked most at the biomechanics of orthopaedic devices, the prediction of the risk of bone fracture in osteoporosis, and the prediction of articular force using subject-specific models.  In the last ten years, I worked almost exclusively on in silico medicine, which is the use of computer models to support the medical decision and to assess the safety and efficacy of new medical products.

currently I am working primarily on:

a) regulatory qualification of in silico methods (with both FDA and EMA)

b) Theory of sub-optimal motor control

I am receiving the support of Ansys Inc. as Ansys Academic program partner.
