In 2014 he has achieved the Professional Qualification as Industrial Engineer (Section A). He was Jury Aggregate Member as Topic expert in Biomedical Instrumentation during the State Examinations enabling the exercise of the profession of Engineer on behalf of Ordine degli Ingegneri of Rome. Section A - Industrial Section.
From February 2015 is Student Mentor for the International Biomechanics Society (ISB) in Instrumentation for Human Motion, Optoelectronic Systems and Optoelectronic Plethysmography.
On July 2015 he has been awarded the International Grant Travel Program Award by the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) with the project "MoCBA - MOtion Capture for Breathing Assessment". MoCBA is an interdisciplinary project taking advantage of the research cooperation between the School of Sport & Exercise Sciences (SSES) at the University of Kent (Dr. Dickinson and Dr. Winter) and the School of Engineering, Research Unit of Measurement and Biomedical Instrumentation (UCBM) at the Campus Bio-Medico di Roma University. He is currently (until 22/04/2016) a Visiting PhD Student at University of Kent (Medway Campus, Kent, UK), where he is working in the Respiratory Clinic Unit.
On September 2017 he has been awarded the 2017 GNB Thesis Award by the Italian National Bioengineering Group (GNB) for outstanding contribute in the field of Biorobotics and Biomechanics.

Since 2008 Paola Saccomandi
has been involved in research activities in the fields of biomedical
instrumentations and measurements applied to medicine. From 2008 to 2011 she
worked under the supervisio of Prof. Sergio Silvestri and Dr. Emiliano Schena
in the fied of mechanical ventilation. In particular she worked on development
of optoelectronic and fiber optic-based flow sensors, as well as on ventilatory
gases humidification. In 2011 she started her main research activity in the
field of laser ablation of cancer, with particular regard to pancreatic tumor.
She developed a mathematic model aiming to predic effects of laser light o
pancreas, in terms of ablated volume and temperature distribution. Since 2012
she has been investigating the field of invasive (fiber optic sensors,
thermocouples) and non-ivasive (based on diagnostic images) thermometry for
temperature monitoring during laser ablation of tumour. In this activity she is
actively collaborating with the team of research of the Institute for
Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology of J. W. Goethe Universität Frankfurt
am Main, headed by Prof. Thomas J. Vogl. Since 2013 she has been working in the
fied of optical characterization of biological tissue, aiming to estimate
optical properties of pancreas. She is collaborating with the team of
Biophysics Institute J. W. Goethe Universität Frankfurt am Main, headed by
Prof. Werner Mäntele. In the framework of laser ablation for the removal of
pancreatic cancer, she has participated at the study approved by UCBM Ethics
Committee -ComEt UCBM-, Prot. N. 4011/2011. The study aims to treat with laser
ablation patients with inoperable pancreatic cancer. Since 2014 she is also
involved in the design and development of tactile sensors for robotic
