Biographical Sketch

Michele Terzano, born on November 11, 1986 in Parma, Italy, pursued his academic studies at the University of Parma, where he obtained both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Civil Engineering with a specialization in strength of materials. Michele received his PhD in Civil Engineering in March 2020. During his doctoral program, Michele enriched his academic experiences through a six-month research collaboration at Imperial College London in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. There he contributed to an EU-funded project exploring robotics in neurosurgery, sparking his interest in the mechanics of soft materials such as biological tissues and hydrogels, with a particular focus on damage and fracture mechanisms. In 2020 he received a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Parma, where he continued his investigations in computational fracture mechanics. In May 2021 he moved to the Institute of Biomechanics in Graz, where he collaborated to two EU-funded projects focusing on the development of in silico models for cardiovascular applications within Horizon 2020. Since 2023, Michele has served as a University Assistant at the Institute of Biomechanics and has taken on teaching tasks in the Bachelor's and Master’s degree programs in Biomedical Engineering.
