Dr. Ristori is an Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands. His research is focused on computational modelling of angiogenesis for tissue engineering applications.

Achieving a full understanding and control of angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels from a pre-existing vasculature, is one of the key challenges to advance the field of tissue engineering. This process is regulated by several cross-talking cell signalling pathways, which vary over time and space. Perturbing their spatiotemporal dynamics is a promising recent trend in tissue engineering. Computational models can be a game-changer in this context; they can be combined with cell experiments to unravel the spatiotemporal interactions of different pathways and to optimize engineering techniques.
