Romano Giannetti was born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1964. He received his degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Pisa in 1989 and the Ph.D. in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the University of Padua in 1993. He was a researcher at Pisa University (Italy) from 1994 to 1998, and since then is Professor at the Universidad Pontificia Comillas (ICAI-ICADE), where he served in several management positions (vice-rector, deputy director, department director). His research interests are in the field of measurement instrumentation and methodology, especially in the field of biomedical instrumentation. He worked on the realization of high portable measurement systems, in noise measurement techniques, in support instrumentation for microelectronic technology (MBE and ALMBE systems), in non-invasive techniques for blood gas measurements, and in low noise measurement systems aimed at the characterization of non-linear materials. He is a senior member of the Measurement and of the Education societies of IEEE.
