Graduated in Mechanical Engineering (Bioengineering) at the Politecnico di Milano. From 1982 to 1984 he was a visiting scientist at MIT, MA, USA (Fluid Mechanics Laboratory and Harvard Medical School, Brigham and Womens' Hospital). From 1984 to 2007 he was a researcher at the Mario Negri Institute of Pharmacological Research in Bergamo. From 1998 to 2007 he was contract professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Politecnico di Milano. In 2007 he became a researcher and since 2015 Associate Professor of Biomedical engineering at the Department of Management, Information and Production Engineering. He is author of over 180 scientific publications in international journals, with an H-Index=60 (Google Scholar). His main areas of interest are: transport phenomena in biological systems; effect of shear stress on the function of endothelial cells in vitro and in vivo; mathematical models for the filtration of water and macromolecules through the glomerular capillary wall; computational fluid dynamics in large arteries and microcirculation; image processing of digital images from confocal and electronic microscopy (TEM, ESEM-FIB), ultrasound scans, CT and MRI.
