Alberto Redaelli, PhD
Scientific Advisor, Co-Founder
Alberto Redaelli is full professor in Biomechanics in the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering since 2014. He currently chairs the Biomedical Engineering Division of the Department and coordinates the Research Group on Biomechanics.
Over his academic life, he has mainly focused on the development of new enabling tools, with the aim of finding new solutions to biological and clinical problems. His research is mainly in the field of cardiovascular biomechanics and computational fluid dynamics, both experimental and computational. In recent years, his research interests have been extended to smaller scales to include molecular modeling of molecular motors and collagen, and microfluidics for the study of blood damage mechanics and myocardial tissue physiopathology. All these activities have rebounded into an intense publishing activity with more than 170 papers published on peer-reviewed journals (Scopus: h-index 40, 5000+ citations), 14 patents, most translated to products, and an intense research project coordination activity (7 European project as local or global coordinator and manifold national grants).
