Dr Enrico Dall’Ara, PhD
Lecturer in Musculoskeletal Multiscale Imaging at the Department of Human Metabolism
Understanding bone mechanics and morphology with Multiscale Experimental and Imaging approaches.
Enrico received his PhD in Biomechanics in 2012 from the Vienna University of Technology and a Master Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Bologna in 2006. After a short PostDoc experience in Vienna he worked for two years as Marie Curie Fellow at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Sheffield. He joined the Department of Human Metabolism of the University of Sheffield as a Lecturer of Musculoskeletal Multiscale Imaging in May 2015.
Enrico’s research interest has always focused on bone, by using imaging, experimental and computational techniques. The combination of these methods at different dimensional scales allows the generation and validation of computational models in order to answer different preclinical and clinical questions.
At the moment he is working with his team on the validation of computational models for the mouse bones for preclinical investigations in the framework of the EPSRC Frontier Engineering Award on Modelling Complex and Partially Identified Engineering Problems – Application to the Individualised Multi-scale Simulation of the Musculoskeletal System (WP leader). He is also involved in an NC3R funded project on the study of bone remodelling (PI Prof Bellantuono) and keep working on the optimization of digital volume correlation techniques for the validation of models at the tissue level (follow up of the European funded project MAMBO).
