  • Biography:

    Marco Ghislieri received his Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy, in 2016. He worked as a Researcher under grant from January 2017 to October 2017 at the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications of the Politecnico di Torino, Turin, Italy. In 2017 he began his Ph.D. in Bioengineering and Medical and Surgical Sciences at the Politecnico di Torino and obtained his Ph.D. degree in July 2021 with the thesis “Muscle Synergy Assessment during Cyclic and Non-Cyclic Movements: Methodological Issues and Application-oriented Studies”. He is mainly active in the field of biomedical signal processing, with a main focus on surface electromyographic signal analysis during cyclical movements in healthy and pathological conditions. He is also active in the field of neuro-engineering and, particularly, in motor control strategy assessment through the analysis of the muscle synergies.

    Research areas:

  • Muscle synergy assessment during cyclic and non-cyclic movements
  • Effects of bilateral sub-thalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation on gait in patients affected by Parkinson's disease
  • Machine learning for muscle activation patterns identification during cyclical movements
  • Multisensory integration in balance control
  • Monitoring of daily living activities through MIMU system: functional reach to grasp
  • Statistical gait analysis

  • Ongoing funded projects:

  • Objective monitoring of axial symptoms in Parkinson's disease: quantitative assessment in daily life based on the use of wearables, video sensing and artificial intelligence (OMNIA-PARK)
  • Effects of bilateral subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation on motor control strategies of patients affected by advanced Parkinson's disease during dual-task walking (PD-DBS)
