Biography

Concetta is currently a Senior Lecturer in the School of Computing and Engineering. She is the Leader of BEng/MEng Medical Engineering Technologies courses and Year 3/4/5 tutor for 7 BEng/MEng programmes in the department of Engineering and Technology.

Concetta received a MEng degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano. In 2012, she started a joint Phd between Politecnico di Milano and Università della Svizzera italiana focused on development cardiac models by means of precise and realistic patient-specific geometries extracted from medical images. She worked as Research Associate at Cardiff University before being appointed as Senior Lecturer.

She has extensive experience in medical image processing and algorithm development.

She has considerable experience in teaching and supervising undergraduate/postgraduate students.

She collaborated with the Noninvasive Cardiac Imaging Laboratory (University of Chicago) and with the Cardiocentro (Lugano).
