Mr. Lorenzo Zani
|Research Areas||Proshtetics, Biomechanics, Finite element analysis,|
|Education||High School Diploma - Expert in Mechanics.|
Bachelor Degree - Biomedical Engineering at University of Bologna.
|About||After my graduation in Biomedical Engineering at University of Bologna, I worked 4 years at Laboratory of Medical Technology of Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute as experimental researcher.|
Now I am PhD student at Wolfson School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at Loughborough University.
My research interests are mainly about prosthetics and Mechanical characterization of living tissue.
