    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 Oncology and Metabolism of the University of Sheffield as a Lecturer in 2015 and senior lecturer in 2019.

    Enrico’s research interest has always focused on bone, by using imaging, experimental and computational techniques. The combination of these approaches enables his team to generate and validate computational models in order to understand the effect of ageing, musculoskeletal diseases and related interventions on the properties of bone and joints.

    Enrico’s team is working on improving current preclinical assessment of interventions for osteoporosis (EPSRC funded MULTISIM and MULTISIM2 projects) and osteoarthritis (NC3Rs funded VPM2 project).  

    Moreover, he is working on the assessment of spine biomechanic in patients with fractures (EU funded SPINNER and SANO projects) and bone metastases (EU funded METASPINE project).
