Lucia Schiatti (M.Sc. 2013, Ph.D. 2018) graduated in Mechatronic Engineering at the University of Trento in 2013, where she continued working as a research fellow in the group of Dr. Giandomenico Nollo and Dr. Luca Faes, within the Biotech Research Center, until October 2014. During this period she gained experience on time series analysis of physiological data, including brain (EEG) signals. In 2014 she completed a period of traineeship in Belgium, under the supervision of Prof. Daniele Marinazzo at the Department of Data Analysis of the University of Ghent, where she worked on the implementation of techniques for the measure of connectivity between brain areas. She received her Ph.D. degree in Bioengineering and Robotics from the University of Genova and the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (February 2018), where she worked starting from November 2014 under the supervision of Dr. Leonardo De Mattos, at the Biomedical Robotics Lab, within the Department of Advanced Robotics (ADVR). During this period she collaborated at the TEEP-SLA project to develop Brain-Computer interface (BCI) systems for motor impaired people, focusing on the topics of biosignal processing, adaptive algorithms development, design of an EEG low-cost acquisition system, and implentation of assistive multimodal interfaces, integrating in particular the gaze signal with non-invasive measures of brain activity related to motor imagery/intent and error awareness. In December 2018 she joined the Unit for Visually Impaired People (U-VIP), led by Dr. Monica Gori, where she is currently working on the topic of multisensory development in visually impaired children.
