Dr. Pavesi was born in Italy, and studied at Politecnico di Milano where he obtained his MS in Biomedical Engineering in 2008. He was awarded with the Interpolytechnic School Fellowship in 2009 and joined the PhD program in Biomedical and Biomechanical Engineering. He spent his last year of the PhD in Boston at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, with Prof. Roger Kamm and completed his PhD in 2012. The same year he moved to Singapore to work as Post-doc at The Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) that is a major research enterprise established by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in partnership with the National Research Foundation of Singapore (NRF). In 2014 he became Research Scientist in SMART and in 2017 he joined the Institute of molecular and cell biology (IMCB) in A-Star as Junior Investigator.  His research is now focused on microfluidic models for studying adoptive cell-mediated cancer immunotherapies in tumour microenvironment models.
