Sara graduated with a masters in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy. Her masters thesis “Multiscale characterization of a glass-ceramic bone scaffold by means of nanoindentation and finite element modelling” focused on the mechanical characterization of a new material for bone scaffolds through both experimental testing and micro-CT based computational models. She has recently started her PhD at the University of Sheffield and her research project is ‘Validation of micro-CT based computational models of bone responses to stimuli.’
Sara is working on Work Package 7. Animal Study.
