Carlo Massaroni
School of Engineering
Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma

Carlo Massaroni was born in Anzio (Rome) in 1988.

He received the B.S. Degree in Biomedical Engineering from Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma in December 2010. The Bachelor thesis title was "Perception Analysis of the form by the use of a numerical chessboard" and it was carried out in collaboration with the Bioinformatics Lab of the same University.

He received the M.S. Degree  with highest honors in Biomedical Engineering from Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma in December 2012. His graduation Thesis was entitled "Preliminary validation of a respiratory apparatus simulator for the assessment of metrological characteristics of a optoelectronic plethysmograph".

With his thesis he won two relevant National Price. On September he has been awarded the 2013 SIAMOC Dissertation Prize by the Italian Society of Clinical Movement Analysis (SIAMOC) in recognition of the outstanding quality of his undergraduate research. On October he has been awarded the 2013 GNB Dissertation Price by the Italian National Bioengineering Group (GNB) for outstanding contribute in the field of Rehabilitation and Prosthetics.

From April 2013 to January 2014 he worked as Biomechanical Researcher in the Unit of Rehabilitation at Scientific Institute for Research IRCCS Eugenio Medea of Conegliano (TV), as Scholarship Winner and Assignee for 2013.

He was PhD Student in Biomedical Engineering at Università Campus Bio-Medico di Roma from January 2014 to December 2016: he started working in the Laboratory of Measurements and Biomedical Instrumentation in January 2014, under the supervision of Prof. Sergio Silvestri.

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.
