Biography

I graduated in 2015 at the University of Trento in 2015 with a degree of Master of Mathematics. In the course of my master's second year, I got interested in biomedical field and I began my research thesis attending an internship with Professor E. F. Toro to deepen my knowledge on numerical simulation of the human cardiovascular system. During this training of several months, I further developed my interest in medicine, realizing that computational modelling can have a significant role in medical analysis and treatment. The Centre for Doctoral Training offers high-level courses, and the possibility to be a part of a stimulating environment as St Thomas' Hospital. I hope that my PhD at the CDT will provide me the knowledge that I need to continue my academic career in the biomedical field.
