Andrea Aliverti received the M.S. in electronic engineering in 1992 and the Ph.D. in biomedical engineering in 1997 from the Politecnico of Milano University, Milan, Italy. He is associate Professor at the Politecnico of Milano University (Department of Biomedical Engineering) where he teaches Sensors and Instrumentation Technologies and Bioengineering of the Respiratory System. His actual research interests include respiratory mechanics (modeling of human respiratory muscle action and rib cage mechanics, the study of exercise in health and disease, effects of mechanical ventilation, cardio-respiratory interactions), biomedical instrumentation (opto-electronic plethysmography and respiratory kinematic analysis, forced oscillation technique, measurements of oxygen consumption), image processing (ultrasonography and computed tomography analysis of diaphragm, airways and lung). Dr. Aliverti is author or co-author of more than 70 full papers on peer review journals, 2 books, 9 book chapters and 10 patents and also a member of the European Respiratory Society (Secretary,2008-2011 and Chair, 2011-2014, of the Respiratory Structure and Function Group).
