Mario Ettore Giardini, FHEA

Lecturer B

Personal Statement

Electronic engineer by training, I design biomedical instruments on the frontier between optics, electronics, and medicine. I work on portable clinical equipment, field diagnostic equipment, medical equipment for challenging environments, sensing for robotic surgery and digital healthcare.

From 1997 to 2005 I have worked as research scientist in the Italian National Institute for Physics of Matter, where my academic research has entailed a strong contact with Industry. From 2005 to 2008 I have moved, to head the R&D Division of a leading European microscope manufacturer, where I have acquired hands-on experience in collaborating with Asian Industry and with industrial R&D.

I currently hold a Lectureship in Digital Health at the Department of Biomedical Engineering of the University of Strathclyde. Please contact me for information on possibilities for collaboration and studentships.
