Gianluca Di Flumeri is a Biomedical Engineer with a Ph.D. cum honors in Biophysics, both got at Sapienza University of Rome, the latter spending a 3-months-period at Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace (ISAE SUPAERO) in Toulouse.
He is currently a Research Fellow at the Department of Molecular Medicine of Sapienza University itself, under the direction of prof. Babiloni. At the same time, he conducts and coordinates scientific research activities at BrainSigns, also managing R&D projects. His main research activity, on behalf of BrainSigns, is focused on acquisition and analysis of human biosignals (EEG, ECG, Skin Conductance, Eye-Tracking), with the aim of investigating neurophysiological correlations with human cognitive phenomena. The result is the development of synthetic neurometrics of specific and relevant mental states, such as mental workload, vigilance, stress, and so on. In particular, he investigates socially relevant applications of these neurometrics, such as the Human Factor evaluation in operational environments (aviation, automotive, robot-assisted surgery), and the development of advanced Human-Machine Interfaces. His research is also applied in Neuromarketing, for the evaluation of cognitive, emotional and motivational processes evoked by external advertising stimuli. He has a great expertise in terms of physiological signals recordings, (bio-)signal processing and machine learning techniques. Also, he usually designs and compiles Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) in order to support the operators by simplifying, optimizing ant automating biosignals acquisition and processing procedures.
The results of his research have been disseminated during several International Conferences of Bioengineering, and published on dozens of papers on peer-reviewed journals, on books and with one patent. He also got several awards from national and international organizations recognizing the forefront and the scientific relevance of his research activity.
