Biography Born in 1985, I have lived in Italy until 2011. I received BSc and MSc in Aerospace Engineering at Politecnico di Torino, then I moved to London to start PhD in Biomedical Engineering in 2012. I am really into fluid dynamics (experimental or computational, anything!), especially passionate about automotive and aerospace aerodynamics. I love Formula 1, cars in general and trains, music, football, cooking, travelling and LEGO!

Pressure estimation from 4D data
Supervised by Prof. Nicolas P. Smith, Dr. David A. Nordsletten and Dr. Pablo Lamata
My project is about estimating pressure in cardiovascular compartments non-invasively from PC-MRI. I have focused my research on improving the mapping of viscous pressure in the vasculature, through the solution of a Poisson equation on pressure, as we believe that friction stresses represent a potential biomarker for disease conditions. I am currently working on a Finite Difference formulation to reduce the impact on noise when computing pressure from the velocity vector fields from imaging data.
