Pietro Picerno (male) is BS in Biomedical Engineering, MS in Sport and Exercise Sciences, and PhD in Sport and Health Sciences. He joined the Locomotor Apparatus Bioengineering Laboratory (LABLAB) of the University of Rome “Foro Italico” in 2003, concluding his experience in 2011 with a Post-Doc fellow. During his MS he won a “Leonardo da Vinci” grant funded by the European Community for a six months traineeship at Xsens Motion Technologies, leading company in wearable inertial and magnetic sensors technologies for human movement analysis. In 2008, during his PhD, he founded Sensorize, a spin-off company of LABLAB expert in developing and producing technological solutions based on wearable inertial sensors for sport and rehabilitation professionals. In Sensorize, he served as R&D Director until 2014. In 2014 he became Assistant Professor at the “e-Campus” Online University where he later became Associate Professor from 2018 to 2023 teaching Biomechanics at the School of Sport and Exercise Science. He is currently Associate Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Sassari and board member of the Italian Society of Human Movement in Clinics (SIAMOC). He serves as a reviewer for several international peer-reviewed journals in the field of biomechanics and human movement analysis. All his research is focused on the development of methodologies for human movement analysis and sport performance assessment by means of wearable inertial and magnetic sensors.
