Claudia received her PhD in Bioengineering in 2004 from the University of Bologna. She carried out her PhD and post-doctoral research activities at the Department of Human Movement Sciences at the University of Rome “Foro Italico”, where she was appointed Assistant Professor from 2006 to 2012. She joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Sheffield as a Lecturer in Feb 2013.
Claudia’s research interest has always focused on human movement analysis and on the definition of quantitative methods for the clinical assessment of an individual locomotor and postural ability.
She is currently involved in two European projects: “MISSION-T2D: Multiscale Immune System Simulator for the Onset of Type 2 Diabetes integrating genetic, metabolic and nutritional data” (WP leader) and “MD-Paedigree, Model Driven Paediatric European Digital Repository (Co-Investigator). She is also WP leader in the EPSRC Frontier Engineering Award on Modelling Complex and Partially Identified Engineering Problems – Application to the Individualised Multi-scale Simulation of the Musculoskeletal System.
