Giacomo Langfelder received his Master in Electronics Engineering and his Ph.D. in Information Technology in 2005 and 2009 respectively from Politecnico di Milano, Italy. There, he was a Teaching and Research Assistant from 2009 to 2010. Since June 2010 he has been an Assistant Professor, currently of Optoelectronic Systems and Digital Imaging.
His research interests include sensors, their front-end electronics, and related applications. At the early stage of his carreer he worked on innovative CMOS sensors with tunable color spaces; on MEMS process reliability; on MEMS accelerometers design and related VLSI electronics. He is now active in the field of MEMS sensors for low-noise, low-power applications, including MEMS magnetometers operating off-resonance, MEMS gyroscopes based on nano-gauge detection, micromachined ultrasonic transducers and AMR sensors.
Within his research, he has been collaborating with industries for seven years. He has been the technical responsible for Politecnico di Milano within two european project (NIRVANA and Lab4MEMS). He has been collaborating with European and non-European scientific partners, as attested by publications.
He was the sole author or co-author of about 40 peer-reviewed scientific articles and about 40 peer-reviewed publications in international conferences proceedings. He was also the co-author of 4 italian patents. He was an invited speaker at International Conferences, at PhD summer schools, at scientific events on digital imaging held at Stanford University, California, and recently (2014) at a scientific event about the future of MEMS sensors held in Milano, Italy.
Giacomo Langfelder was the recipient of the Premio di Laurea 2005, granted by Accenture, and of the "Premio per la promozione della Ricerca Scientifica 2011", granted by Rotary International.
He is currently the responsible of the MEMS and Microsensors Laboratory of the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering in Politecnico di Milano, where, on average, he is the supervisor of 3-4 MS Theses and of 3 PhD Students.
In 2014, he was the co-founder of ITmems s.r.l., a spin-off company dedicated to the development of Instrumentation for the characterization of MEMS and sensors. He is currently serving as President of ITmems s.r.l.
