Gastone Ciuti is Associate Professor of Bioengineering at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna. He received the M.Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Pisa in 2008 and the Ph.D. degree in Biorobotics from the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa, Italy) in 2011. His research interests include robot/computer-assisted platforms, such as tele-operated and autonomous magnetic-based robotic platforms for navigation, localization and tracking of smart mechatronic devices in guided and targeted minimally invasive surgical and diagnostic applications, e.g. advanced capsule endoscopy. He is the co-author of more than 100 international peer reviewed papers on computer-integrated platforms for medical robotics and the inventor of more than 15 patents on this topic. He is Associate Editor of the IEEE Journal of Bioengineering and Health Informatics (IEEE J-BHI) and of the Journal of Micro-Bio Robotics (JMBR, Springer). He is Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) society and Member of the Technical Committee in BioRobotics of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS).
