Curriculum vitae

Giuseppe Baldazzi born in Bologna (Italy) the 03/11/1955, where it resides in via del Beccaccino n 15. He attended the Industrial Technical High School "Odone Belluzzi" of Bologna obtaining on July 29th, 1976, the high-school graduation diploma, Industrial Physics Expert, with full grade.

In the same year he enters University of Bologna, faculty of Mathematics Physics and natural Sciences and, on December 13th, 1991, obtained the Degree In Physics with the 106/110 grade, discussing a thesis of the title: Characterization of a Photon Detector organized in a n x n Matrix of Solid State Microdetectors of CdTe. Such experimental thesis was prepared at Laboratories of the Institute for the Technology and Study of the Extraterrestrial Radiation of The National Council of Researches (C.N.R./TE.S.R.E). Some publications and comunications are followed.

He attended the postgraduate perfectioning Course in Physics at the University of Bologna continuing the researches in the field of radiation detectors and their applications in Tomography (applied to industry and medicine) and Astrophysics and getting the certificate on December 12th, 1992.

He did the Research Doctorate in Physics - Healt Physics curriculum - at the Health Physics Sector of the Physics Departement of the University of Bologna, occupying himself of tomography for the applied research and the medicine and discussing, on March 22, 1996, the PhD thesis of the title: Development of a Measurement System for High Energy X Radiation, applied to Industrial Tomography, based on Solid State CdZnTe Detectors.

He obtained the Diploma of Health Physics Specialist at the University Of Bologna, discussing, on June 25, 1997, an experimental thesis of the title: Design and development of a Portable System for the Spectrometry of X-ray Beams in Quality Controls with Semiconductor Detectors. This work was performed at the Health Physics Service of The University of Bologna.

He has a good knowledge of the French and English languages.

He has programming experience in COBOL, BASIC, FORTRAN, PASCAL, ASSEMBLY, C and C++, Visual C++, LabVIEW, MATLAB languages, of the interfacing of hardware and software systems and of the embedded PC & controller.

He worked as Contractor Technician at the Health Physics Service of The University of Bologna from 1996 to 1999.
He was fix-term Contract Professor at Health Physics School of Specialization of The University of Bologna in the years 1998 and 1999.
Since January 1th, 2000 he is Researcher, since January 11th, 2003 is Senior Researcher and since January 2005 he is Aggregate Professor with the Medicina and Surgery Faculty of The University of Bologna, afferent to Physics Department.

SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

    At present he dedicates the research in the sector of Radiations Physics and new Radiological Area Equipments:
a.    development of a multi-energy tomograph with quasi-monochromatic beams for tumoral and metastasis growth study;
b.    development of a Compton Camera (that is a gamma-camera evolution) for Nuclear Medicine applications (INFN Experiment named XDXL of which is the local referent) and in Astrophysics (ESA Experiment named LOFT);
c.    development of a new SPECT camera with new scintillators and position-sensitive photomultipliers dedicated to the study of new "intelligent" radiofarmaceuticals;
d.    radiological characterization of healty and pathological tissues;
e.    X-ray spectrometry applied to medical diagnostics;
f.    Biological effects, dosimetry and microdosimetry of ionising and non-ionising (NIR) radiations.

He was the Scientific Secretary of XIV International Conference on Mechanics in Biology and medicines kept in Bologna on September 16-18th, 2004.
He was in the Organizing Committee of International Topical Seminar on Innovative Particle and Radiation Detectors kept in Siena on October 1-5th, 2006 whose Proceedings have been published by Elsevier on Nucl. Phys. B (Proc). (Suppl). 172 (2007).
