Valentina Camomilla, since 2006, is Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at Foro Italico. From 2016 to 2019 Director, currently Vice-Director of the Interuniversity Centre of Bioengineering of the Human Neuromusculoskeletal System at the same University. She co-authored 46 articles in peer-reviewed journals, 3 book chapters, and more than 70 Conferences abstracts. She participated in several research programmes financed by International (CEE – IST; Universitè Franco-Italienne) and National Agencies (Italian Ministry for University and Research; Italian Ministry of Health) and by her Institution. She serves as Associate Editor for Frontiers in Sports and Active Living Sports Science, Technology and Engineering (2019- ), as member of the Editorial Board of Sports Biomechanics (2019- ), and as a reviewer for several journals in the domain of Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering. Member of the Board of Directors of the 3-D Analysis of Human Movement (3DAHM) Technical Group of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) and member of the Italian Society for Movement Analysis in Clinics and of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports. Her research concerns: 1. qualitative and quantitative technique and performance analysis in sport through applied and methodological studies for the reliable in-field quantification, mainly based on the use of inertial sensor units, of critical performance features (track and field sports, tennis, volleyball and weightlifting) and neuromuscular control studies in elite karateka. 1. increasing the resolution of human movement analysis, performed using stereophotogrammetry, addressing the relative movement within skin and bone (soft tissue artifact) and the inaccuracy in anatomical landmark identification. Currently lecturer in the M.Sc. Bioengineering (at Roma Tre), in the M.Sc. Sport Science and Techniques, M.Sc. Preventive and Adapted Physical Activity, B.Sc Movement and Sport Sciences (at Foro Italico). Past member of the Doctorate of Philosophy school in Sport Sciences, Physical Exercise and Ergonomy (2007-2012), current member of the Doctorate of Human Movement and Sport Sciences. She supervised 4 post docs, 7 PhD candidates, and 40 M.Sc. student theses.
