Research Fellow


Marco is a Research Fellow at the Auckland Bioengineering Institute. 

Marco graduated from the University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Biomedical Engineering in 2012. He went on to join the Musculoskeletal System Group and completed his PhD in Bioengineering in 2017.

The focus of his research is on the development of computational tools for medical image segmentation and population-based musculoskeletal models for characterising and understanding joint biomechanics. 

Research | Current

Marco is continuing his work in medical image segmentation and musculoskeletal modelling in both the basal thumb joint and the knee joint. Currently, Marco is working on the Knee Hub project
