Leonardo Cardinali obtains the Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering at Politecnico di Torino in november 2019, his studies focus mostly on electonics and informatics applications in the biomedical field, his master thesis is about EEG analysis and the developement of a software for automatic features extraction of evoked potentials.
Immediately after graduating he is hired by Teoresi SPA as consultant test specialist for ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) at Stellantis, where he works until march 2021.
In april 2021 he starts a one-year researching activity in the Neurosciences department "Rita Levi Montalcini" with professor Silvestro Roatta about an augmented and alternative communication device for patients in complete locked-in state (CLIS). At the end of the year he will produce an article published by the journal "Electronics".
After this first experience in the research field he becomes a PhD student at the Electronics and Telecommunications department of Politecnico di Torino, his work is about microwave technology for non-invasive Alzheimer's disease diagnosis. His supervisors are professor Francesca Vipiana and professor Jorge Alberto Tobon Vasquez.
