After joining ST in 2012, Lisa contributed to several success stories in consumer, automotive and industrial markets, such as the massive Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) product deployment in the smartphone industry. Since January 2020, Lisa is responsible for our MEMS Ecosystem and Digital Marketing, she has played a key role in ST’s Artificial Intelligence strategy for MEMS and sensors. Lisa graduated with a Master’s degree in Telecommunication Engineering in 2006 from The University of Trento, Italy.
Consumer devices delivering quasi-medical performance are the new frontier to continuously monitor an individual’s health and to effectively deploy techniques for disease prevention. Heart rate and respiration rate are among the most important vital signs to consider in analyzing an individual’s health. Simple and non-invasive solutions are necessary to move forward in deploying everyday health monitoring. By combining an innovative electrostatic sensor, that we call Qvar™, with a MEMS inertial sensor, individuals can obtain reliable heart beat and respiration rate data with using an unprecedentedly small power budget and by reusing commercial electrodes.
