About

Maria Letizia Raffa received her PhD in Solid Mechanics from the University of Rome ‘Tor Vergata’ and the Aix-Marseille University (cotutelle). She is actually working as research assistant at the MSME Laboratory (Créteil) on the ERC-funded projet BoneImplant. Her current research interests include numerical and analytical modeling of contact problems and imperfect interfaces/interphases.
