Ernesto SERRANO-FINETTI (b. 1972, male) obtained the Ingeniero Electrónico degree (major in Electrical Engineering) from the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, Lima, Perú, 1998 and the Doctor por la Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya degree (Biomedical Engineering PhD) from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, 2003. From 1998 to 2001 he was the recipient of an Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional (Foreign Affairs Ministry, Spain) scholarship to follow the PhD program at the UPC. Since 2002 he is an Assisstant Professor of Electronic Engineering at the same University, and teaches courses on electronic systems, instrumentation, sensors and analog signal conditioning. In 1998 he started his research in the Instrumentation and Bioengineering Division, a research group, until 2002, when he moved to a new UPC campus in Castelldefels (Barcelona), where he joined the Instrumentation, Sensors and Interfaces research Group. His research includes instrumentation methods and sensors based on electrical impedance measurements, noninvasive physiological measurements, autonomous sensors and electronic interfaces for different kind of sensors.
From July 2008 to June 2009 he was the recipient of a José de Castillejo post-doctoral grant from the Ministerio de Educación, Spain and joined The Biomedical Sensor Systems Group at Philips Research Europe, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, where he performed research related to noninvasive physiological monitoring for neonates. . Since 2002, he has collaborated in 4 research projects funded by the Spanish Government, one private-funds research project and in 2 research projects funded by the European Union under the 7 Framework Program: SmartPaddy, (7FP-SME-2011-11, Grant agreement 285861) and Rice Guard (7FP-SME-2013-2, Grant agreement 606583). He has several papers and communications to international conferences on topics directly related to electronic instrumentation and analog design and is co-inventor of one Spanish patent.
