Research interests

Biomedical engineering


Alessandra Aldieri got the PhD in Bioengineering and medical-surgical sciences from Politecnico di Torino in 2020, working in the Industrial Bioengineering group led by Prof. Alberto Audenino. After the PhD she carried on her research activities as a post-doctoral fellow at Politecnico di Torino until May 2021. From June 2021 to July 2022 she worked as a Post-Doctoral fellow at the University of Bologna in the research group of Prof. Marco Viceconti. From July 2022 she is Assitant Professor (RTD-A) at Politecnico di Torino. Her main research interest is computational biomechanics applied to human tissues. In particular, she has been focusing on the prediction of bone fracture in silico, with partcular attention to femur and spine skeletal districts.
