Andrea Aliverti


Andrea Aliverti is associate Professor at the Politecnico of Milano University (Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering) where he teaches Sensors and Instrumentation Technologies and Bioengineering of the Respiratory System.

He is head of Lares (Respiratory Analysis Lab) at the Biomedical Technology Laboratory (TBM-Lab) and has been technical coordinator of the European Project "CARED" (Computer Assisted Rehabilitation for Respiratory Diseases). His research interests include:

- Bioengineering of the Respiratory System.
- Respiratory mechanics (modeling of human respiratory muscle action and rib cage mechanics, the study of exercise in health and disease, effects of mechanical ventilation, cardio-respiratory interactions);
- Biomedical instrumentation (opto-electronic plethysmography and respiratory kinematic analysis, forced oscillation technique, measurements of oxygen consumption); 
- Image processing (ultrasonography and computed tomography analysis of diaphragm, airways and lung, alveolar microscopy).

Dr. Aliverti is author or co-author of more than 100 full papers on peer review journals, 2 books, 9 book chapters and 10 patents and Chair of the European Respiratory Society scientific group “Clinical Physiology and Exercise”.
