I am a Biomedical Engineering from University of Genova (Italy). I carried out her Master thesis at EPFL working on the development of an Android interface for the wireless and continuous monitoring of metabolites. After the graduation and the admission in the Electrical Engineering Doctoral program of EPFL, I started as Doctoral Assistant in the Integrated System Laboratory (LSI) under the supervision of Sandro Carrara. The focus of my research is the development of a non implantable prototype for the monitoring of multiple anesthesiology drugs in human blood with the total realization of the sensing platform, microfluidics system and the software development. Indeed, multiple sensing of human anesthetics is of great importance in surgical environment and ICUs. An immediate visualization of the measured data is needed in order to ensure a continuous monitoring of patient’s critical parameters. To that aim we realized an Android network to keep the intensive care doctor always connected with the patients under their responsibility. We are moving towards a connected/smart hospital scenario where patient safety, data accuracy, and doctor/caregiver mobility will be fueled by wireless technology. I presented the Andorid monitoring system during MOBIHEALTH Conference in Milan, November 2016, winning the Best Paper Award. The Andoird system was also published in the main page of EPFL (News Mediacom) where all the relevant research activities of the Politecnical School are reported. The news has also been spread by other website, as PhysOrg, myScience etc., and also in french version as in 24heures .
