About Enrico: 

In 2015 I was appointed as Lecturer in Musculoskeletal Multiscale Imaging at the Department of Human Metabolism. I joined the University of Sheffield in 2013 as Marie Curie Fellow at the Department of Mechanical Engineering.

I hold a PhD in Biomechanics from the Vienna University of Technology and a Master degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Bologna.

My research interests are related to better understanding bone mechanics and remodelling with imaging, experimental and computational methods. In particular the main goal of my research is to develop and validate computational models for the prediction of bone strength and risk of fracture in healthy and disease, applied to both preclinical and clinical studies.

About Liz:

I trained in Physiology at The University of Sheffield and continued at Sheffield for my postgraduate studies investigating the role of riboflavin deficiency on gastrointestinal development. I was awarded my PhD in 1996 and was then appointed as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the MRC Dunn Nutrition Unit, Cambridge and worked at a MRC field station in The Gambia, West Africa. On my return to the UK I was appointed as a Lecturer in Human Nutrition at Newcastle University. In 2003 I returned to Sheffield and joined the Human Nutrition Unit as a Lecturer. I was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2010.
