Ing. Ermanno Cordelli


After his Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering (110/110) in 2014, Ermanno worked for one year with a collaboration contract in the Computer Systems and Bioinformatics research laboratory at the Departmental Faculty of Engineering of the University Campus Bio-medico di Roma, and then continued his studies by starting his PhD in Bioengineering and Biosciences (computer science area) at the same University in 2017, which was then completed in 2019, with a thesis entitled “Artificial intelligence meets diabetes at the micro-scale: forecasting complications and quantitatively mining insulin granules motions”.
He is currently Assistant Professor at the University Campus Bio-Medico di Roma in the Research Laboratory of Computing Systems and Bioinformatics and his main research topics are Artificial Intelligence and its applications in the health sector, Federated Learning, Computer Vision, Radiomics and IoT working within a project on the creation of a intelligent pen for diabetes treatment.
Since his PhD, Ermanno has had the opportunity to participate in international conferences and actively collaborates with other researchers to publish papers on the topics of his work. For the past three years, he has also been involved as a hackathon mentor and lecturer in the intensive training programme “Digital Tween Bootcamp” at the University Campus Bio-Medico di Roma.
