Curriculum vitae

Marco Tartagni received an M.S. in Electrical Engineering in 1988 and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences in 1993 both from the University of Bologna, Italy. During his Ph.D. program, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA in 1992 as a visiting student and in 1994 as a research fellow, working on various aspects of analog VLSI for image processing. Since March 1995 he has been with the Department of Electronics, Bologna University, where he is currently an Associate Professor. From 1996 to 2001 he was team leader in the joint STMicroelectronics and Bologna University lab working on intelligent sensors such as CMOS cameras ad biometric devices. In 1997, within that framework, he was the designer of the first silicon-only fingerprint capacitive sensor. In 1999 he was co-founder of Silicon Biosystems, and in 2001 he was a co-founder of the Center of Excellence for Electronic Design ARCES, University of Bologna. He was co-recipient of the Van Vessem Outstanding Paper Award, received at the 2004 IEEE ISSCC conference, for presenting a biosensor platform based on dielectrophoresis. From 2005 to 2008 he was European coordinator of FP6 RECEPTRONICS in the Nanotechnology thematic area. Since 2008 he has been coordinator of the Energy Autonomous Systems and member of the More-than-Moore roadmapping team within the European CATRENE initiatives. He is author or co-author of more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific publications in the field of sensor theory, design and testing. He is also the holder of 18 US granted patents and 11 European and WIPO patents.
