Curriculum vitae

Stefano Severi is Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Department of Electronics, Computer Science and Systems of the University of Bologna, Italy. He received his Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering in July 1993 and his PhD in Bioengineering in May  1998, both from the University of Bologna. He has written over 200 papers, 80 of which published in peer reviewed international journalswith Impact Factor. Since 1996, he has participated to 13 extramural grants with investigators from other institutions and has been PI in 18 research contracts with 9 biomedical companies. In particular, he has been PI of "EureCa - Effects of uremia on cardiac activity: in vivo, in vitro and in silico analysis" (Italian Ministry of University and Research) involving 3 research groups; Responsible for a Task in "CHIRON - Cyclic and person-centric Health management: Integrated appRoach for hOme, mobile and clinical eNvironments" (ARTEMIS JOINT UNDERTAKING, GA 2009-1-100228); PI in "Patient-specific computational modeling of the atrium under pathological conditions: understanding arrhythmogenesis in dialysis and atrial fibrillation for improved prevention and therapy" (MIUR-DAAD Joint Mobility Program). He serves as a reviewer for several peer-reviewed international journals and for the Italian Ministry of Research.
