Publications

As part of my scientific work, I have successfully lead several academic and industrial research teams, resulting in the publication of over a dozen high-impact publications in the fields of biomedical engineering, biomechanics, tissue mechanics, human body simulation, patient digital twins, in-silico trials, and digital health.

On this page, I share my main scientific contributions so far. You can see the citation metrics on my google scholar profile.
