Visitor to the soft tissue mechanics lab

During my stay in the KTH Solid Mechanics department I had the opportunity to visit the soft tissue mechanics laboratory and to try an uniaxial tensile test on tissue from a porcine aorta. I had the opportunity to participate in several experiments held by trainee Joey Wollfs. He is currently involved in some experimental activities in testing vascular tissues under Read more…

Diary of a thesis abroad – Part I

This is my diary about my period abroad to develop my master’s thesis work on Vascular Biomechanics at the KTH Solid Mechanics department. I will tell the whole period in several articles, let’s start with September. I had the opportunity to go abroad to prepare my master’s thesis project. The project started from a deep interest in the mechano-chemo-biological behavior Read more…

Biomechanics Summer School

I finished my experience in the Summer School entitled “Computational Tissue Biomechanics: From in-vitro experiment to computational analysis“. The course introduces and applies state-of-the-art tools in the continuum mechanical analysis of biological tissues. It is designed for master students and PhD students having a decent background in mechanical engineering and solid mechanics. Furthermore, the course integrates theoretical, numerical, and experimental Read more…

Wolfram Mathematica Masterclass

I just finished the “Wolfram Mathematica Masterclass: from Beginner to Expert” course held on the Udemy online platform by Dr. Börge Göbel. The course allowed me to refine the already established Skills within the Wolfram Mathematica environment and to touch further practical projects. Mathematica Wolfram Mathematica is a very powerful tool. It allows, with a very compact language, to solve Read more…
