Andrea Spanu graduated magna cum laude in Bioengineering in 2011 at University of Genova discussing the thesis titled “Design and realization of an organic FET-based sensor for electrophysiological application“.
He joined the NBT group in January 2012 as PhD student in Bioengineering at the Department of Informatics, Bioengineering, Robotics, and System Engineering of the same university working on a project that involved the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at University of Cagliari.
His research interests focus on the integration of organic electronics and electrophysiology, and he is currently working on the realization of an organic FET-based system for electrophysiological applications.
In April 2015 he obtained the PhD degree in Bioengineering discussing the thesis “Organic transistor devices for in-vitro electrophysiological applications”. He is now with the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at University of Cagliari as a postdoctoral research assistant.
