Short Biography

Lorenzo Iafolla received his master degree in physics with honors from the Università di Tor Vergata, Rome (Italy) in 2009. After his studies he worked for several years for two of the most important Italian research institutions (National Institute for Nuclear Physics and National Institute for Geophysics and Volcanology) and for his own enterprise which is specialized in scientific instrumentation (high sensitivity accelerometers). He gained a profound knowledge in precision measurement techniques applied to Particle Physics, Geophysics, Oceanography and others scientific fields. Besides that, he expanded his expertise in designing, assembling, and using mechanical and electronic devices.

He has started his Ph.D. in July 2016 in the Planning and Navigation group of the MIRACLE project at the Department of Biomedical Engineering in Allschwil. During his Ph.D., he will develop new minimally invasive navigation techniques using an opto-mechanical position sensor.
