Marco Jacono graduated in Electronic Engineering at the University of Genoa in 2001, studying the Modelling of skeletal muscles and spinal reflex. Application to stability of upright standing . From 2001 to 2002 he worked at ASL 2 in Lucca (Italy) where he developed informatics tools to acquire and analyze biomedical data (Matlab® , Labview® ). From 2003 to 2006 was biomedical engineer at the Center of Bioengineering at Hospital La Colletta, Genova (Italy). In this period he worked mainly on posturographic analysis, motion analysis, and developing telemedicine project to monitoring motor activities. Since 2006 he works at Italian Institute of Technology as senior technician. Actually main activity is dedicate to prepare experimental setup, technical and scientific support to PhD students and manage procedure related to infrastructure of lab.
