Caterina Credi


She received the B.S. degree in mechanical engineering from the Università degli Studi di Firenze, Florence, in 2008, the M.S. degree in biomedical engineering and the Ph.D. degree in materials engineering from the Politecnico di Milano, in 2011 and 2015, respectively. In 2013, she spent six months with the Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia, Barcelona, where she was also with the Barcelona Centre for International Health Research in 2014. Since 2015, she has been a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Chemistry, Materials, and Chemical Engineering Department Politecnico di Milano. Her research is focused on the synthesis, characterization and functionalization of organic and inorganic materials and surface bio-functionalization for wide fields of applications mainly including biomedical and diagnostic fields.
