BIO

 

Marco Ivaldi was born in Turin in 1979, he is a Clinical Kinesiologist and Ph.D. in Complex systems in medicine and life sciences, with specialization in medical pathophysiology.
He was a semi-professional cyclist (now he is a mountain running athlete)  and after a spell working in clinical setting now takes care of applied research. The fields of action are mainly neuroscience in relation to the movement and technological innovation in complex systems.

He is adjunct professor of Neurophysiology of movement , Bases of human movement, Methodology of movement and sports, Processes of communication and Sociology and communication of sport. He is also lecturer at the Sanis, national training school specializing in nutrition and food supplementation in sports.

He won consecutively three  grants FOR applied research, financed by Lagrange Project and supervised by the ISI Foundation.
He was responsible for the supervision during the construction of the Touch Wall and during the design of the software. He is expert in movement theories and he indicated the guidelines for the structuring of quantitative analysis of the movement through the instrument.

He founded two spinoffs, We-Sport and aGrisù. He has registered two patents, one of which international, for the absorption measurement of airborne pollutants during sports practice.
