Antonio Forte PhD viva. New phantoms for brain surgery training. New brain shift simulations. 

I was delighted to be part of this and to work with Jonathan Jeffers who was internal examiner on this. The results of Antonio were outstanding. He designed and synthesised as well as characterised new gels to mimic brain tissue. He tested them and designed an experimental setup allowing to test brain shift and simulated the resulting problem numerically. 

Thank you to Daniele Dini for the invitation to examine this thesis!
