After my Master degree studies in Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, I joined the Cardiorespiratory Unit of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children & UCL Institute of Child Health for a PhD programme sponsored by the British Heart Foundation. I obtained my PhD in 2008 when I was awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering/EPSRC Research Fellowship, and I was appointed as a Lecturer to UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science in March 2013. Since August 2011, I have been the Lead for the Centre for Clinical Cardiovascular Engineering at UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.
