Flavia Atzori

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Cagliari

My thesis project for the B.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering is focused on developing Matlab graphical user interfaces able to control biomedical polygraphs like Biopac MP36 or TMSI Porti7 to involve the user in interactive educational experiences based on the acquisition and processing of physiological signals.

Benedetta Sibono

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Cagliari

My thesis project for the B.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering is focused on developing and analyzing in Matlab a dataset of long-lasting non-invasive fetal ECG signals, including twins. The thesis will be developed in collaboration with the Department of Pediatric Cardiology and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the ARNAS Brotzu, Cagliari (Dr. R. Tumbarello).

Marco Zedda

Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Cagliari

My thesis project for the B.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering is focused on investigat ing in silico the inducibility of ventricular tachycardia following the ablation using a dataset of post-ischemic left ventricle electrophysiological models. To this aim, the thesis will be developed using the openCARP framework.
