Marco Tartagni received the five-year laurea degree in electrical engineering in 1988 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer sciences in 1993 from the University of Bologna, Italy. He joined the Department of Electrical Engineering of the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif, in 1992 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 of the University of Bologna where he serves currently as an Associate Professor. From 1996 to 2001, he has been a Team Leader in the joint laboratory between STMicroelectronics and University of Bologna working on intelligent sensors such as CMOS cameras and the first silicon-only fingerprint capacitive sensor, now commercial product in the biometric market. Since 2001, he has been with the Centre of Excellence for Electronic Design ARCES, University of Bologna, working on sensor networks, hybrid technologies for cellular and molecular biology, and impedance-based sensing. He is as a Cofounder of Silicon Biosystems and Sortron and Corecipient of the Van Vessem Outstanding Paper Award received at the 2004 IEEE International Solid State Conference. He has been the European Coordinator of the EC funded Receptronics Project on nanosensors, and the Coordinator of the MEDEA+ working group on Energy Autonomous Systems dealing with energy harvesting technologies.
