Nicola graduated in 2014 in Biomedical Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (Milan, IT) and received his European PhD in Bioengineering in 2018 at Politecnico di Milano, working on the development of hydrogel-based scaffolds for soft tissue regeneration via advanced fabrication technologies. He has been a visiting researcher at the University of Brighton (Brighton, UK), Warsaw University of Technology (Warsaw, PL), and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Cambridge, MA, USA). Nicola joined the Celiz Lab as PostDoctoral Research Associate in 2019 to develop hydrogel-based biomaterials to support dental tissue engineering.
