vottaEmiliano Votta has a Master degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano (2001) and obtained a PhD degree in Bioengineering in 2006.
Since 2003 he has been teaching at Politecnico di Milano. Up to 2016, he was teaching assistant for Biomechanics courses for undergraduate students in the Biomedical Engineering Bachelor track. Since 2016/2017, he is professor of the course Advanced Modeling Approaches For Cardiovascular Surgery [I.C.] and of the course Computational Biomechanics Laboratory for graduate students of the Biomedical Engineering Masters track. Since 2008 until 2010 he was adjunct professor for the Biomedical Engineering track at Politecnico di Torino. Currently, he is one of the student exchange coordinators of the Biomedical Engineering Program.
He is author or co-author of more than 120 scientific publications in the field of biomechanics, including more than 50 peer reviewed manuscripts on international journals. Currently, his main research activity deals with the development of patient-specific numerical models of heart valves from clinical imaging data, aimed to supporting the development of novel devices and techniques for heart valve surgery, as well as to support surgical planning. He is one of the co-founders of Artiness, a start-up company stemmed from the Biomechanics Research Group and devoted to support the planning and the fullfillment of percutaneous procedures by means of mixed reality.
