Lorenzo Bonetti

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Pavia - Project: ERC Starting Grant CoDe4Bio, ID 101039467 (funding: European Union).

Lorenzo studied biomedical engineering at the Polytechnic University of Milan, where he also received a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering, working on biobased stimuli-responsive hydrogels for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications. He is working on new approaches to the 3D printing/bioprinting of smart polymers and hydrogels and their characterization.


Matteo Arricca

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Pavia - Project: F2SMP (funding: Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation).

Matteo studied Civil Engineering at the University of Cagliari, completing his MSc thesis in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He defended his PhD thesis on Finite Strain Chemo-Thermo-Electro-Mechanics with Applications in Mechanobiology in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Brescia, and in collaboration with the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is working on theoretical and computational modeling of the thermo-mechanical, failure and fracture behavior of smart polymers.
