Short Biography

Andrea joined The Interface Group in August 2019 for his PhD thesis after obtaining his master’s degree from Politecnico di Milano in Biomedical Engineering. For his master’s thesis, he utilized computational fluid dynamics to investigate haemodynamic characteristics of left ventricular assit devices (LVAD) and to evaluate LVAD thrombogenicity using a shear-mediated platelet activation model. His doctoral thesis revolves around the non-invasive acquisition of a surrogate for cranio-spinal compliance.
