Federica Boschetti was born in 1965 in Milan (Italy). She received her master degree (M.Eng.) in Electronical Engineering in 1990 and her Ph.D. in Bioengineering in 1994 from Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy. From 1994 to 2005 she was post-doc at Politecnico di Milano; Ospedale S.Raffaele, Milan; Northwestern University Evanston, IL, USA. She was Assistant professor at Politecnico di Milano from 2005 to 2013. Actually she is Associate Professor of Industrial Bioengineering (since 2013) at the Department of Chemistry, Materials and Chemical Engineering, Giulio Natta of Politecnico di Milano, and co-founder of MgShell, a spin off of Politecnico di Milano, dedicated to design, development, production, characterization and commercialization of biomedical devices.
Most of Federica Boschetti’s research activity deals with experimental and computational Biomechanics. After the early research experience in mathematical modelling (lumped parameters models, transport and fluid-dynamics numerical modelling) and in vitro tests with artificial lungs, during the last thirteen years Federica Boschetti has been re-orienting her research interests towards: tissue mechanics and tissue engineering; in vitro testing and design; microfluid-dynamics. The combined numerical-experimental approach is the common feature of all her research activities. Federica Boschetti’s most recent activities, since 2015, are directed towards drug delivery and device fabrication, in particular for the ocular environment.
Federica Boschetti has co-authored more than 150 scientific works, of which 66 published in peer-reviewed international journals, and four patents.
