at Computational Life Inc

Christian Contarino obtained the Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics at the University of Genoa in 2012 and the Diploma in piano at the Conservatory of Genoa “Niccolò Paganini” in 2012. He then received the Master of Science in Mathematics at the University of Trento and he received the PhD in Mathematics at the University of Trento, under the supervision of Prof. Eleuterio F. Toro. His research is mainly focused on studying the physics of neurodegenerative diseases using multi-scale mathematical models of the fluid compartments in the animal body, including the lymphatic circulation. He collaborated with the Kipnis lab at the University of Virginia and with the University of Sydney. Christian has the vision of developing an in-silico clinical trial tool by creating a database of virtual humans through multi-scale modelling of the human physiology to establish the efficacy of medical devices. He manages and coordinates collaborations and research projects between industry and academia. Christian has experience in presenting in 20+ international conferences as expert in cardiovascular modelling and neurovascular diseases · Won the Young Investigator Award 2016 – (ISNVD) · Won the Travel Award LE&RN 2017 – (LE&RN) · Won the Gerhard Jirka Award 2018 – (IAHR) · Won the best PhD in Mathematics at the University of Trento 2018 Published in Nature, in Medical, Mathematical and Engineering international scientific journals.
