Simone Borrelli

PhD Student

Simone obtained his bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Florence. Then, he graduated at Politecnico di Torino with an MA in Biomedical Engineering in 2019. Simone’s thesis work was carried out in University of Alberta, Canada, where he developed a protein-protein interaction model for the analysis of metastatic brain cancer development. Currently, he is working on different projects regarding the design of biomechanical models of spine and lower limbs as well as the study of computer-assisted surgery systems applied in orthopaedics. His interest in computational biomechanical modelling ranges from nano- to macro-scales. Finally, he is co-founder of the start-up ‘Bel2Go’, a wearable device aiming to improve indoor orientation for blind people
