Marco Carminati was born in 1981 in Milan (Italy). He received B. Sc. and M. Sc. in Electronic Engineering, both magna cum laude from the Politecnico di Milano, in 2003 and 2005 respectively. In 2006 he joined DEI developing a compact aircraft attitude estimation unit based on MEMS inertial sensors and Kalman filtering. In January 2007 he won (first position in the ranking) a national grant for his doctoral studies, which he completed in 2009, focusing on low-noise analog design and (bio)-electronic instrumentation. In 2007 he was awarded a Progetto Roberto Rocca Fellowship and spent the 2008 spring semester at MIT (USA) as a visiting student in prof. Voldman’s group, working on bioMEMS and microfluidics. From 2010 to 2015 he was post-doc researcher at DEIB in prof. Marco Sampietro’s group contributing to the invention of original micro-sensors based on high-resolution impedance detection for silicon photonics and environmental monitoring. Since 2014 he is teacher of the Biochip course and since 2016 he is fixed-term Assistant Professor (RTDa) in the group of prof. Carlo Fiorini, focusing on low-noise nuclear electronics. He has authored more than 80 international publications, holds 2 patents and was awarded 2 best paper awards at IEEE conferences.
