Virgilio Valente received the Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering from University College London (UCL), U.K., in 2011. Between 2011 and 2020 he held postdoctoral and Faculty positions at UCL, UK, and Delft University of Technology, Netherlands. In 2015, he also joined Tetrivis LTD, UK, as an IC design engineer. In 2017, Virgilio was a Visiting Scholar in the Nano Lab at Tufts University, Medford, USA.
Dr. Valente’s research focuses on the design of integrated sensor systems for insertable and injectable wireless biosensor networks, with medical applications including wireless health monitoring, diagnostics and closed-loop therapy.
Dr. Valente is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a member of the IEEE BioCAS Technical Committee and a member of the IEEE ICECS Technical Program Committee. In 2019 he served as Track Chair at the IEEE Asia Pacific Conference on Circuits and Systems (APCCAS), Bangkok, Thailand.
