Testing

Born in Mirano near Venice, I began my engineering studies in 1997 at the University of Padova, obtaining the Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering. I worked for 10 years in the clinical engineering departments of several Italian hospitals for the management and maintenance of electro-medical equipment. In 2012 I moved to Switzerland to deepen my studies in electronic engineering at SUPSI DTI in Lugano and obtained the Master in Precision Systems and Telecom, developing a Bluetooth server of a biometric sensors network. I joined Oculox in December 2019. In 1995 I graduated in piano in Padova, I founded in Bellinzona a music school where I’m the piano teacher, and I organize musical cultural events in Switzerland and Italy.
