Our Principal Research Team
This team brings together individuals with backgrounds in neuroscience, human physiology, biomedical engineering and biomedical science, to plan, coordinate and implement various research projects..
Dr. Marco Rotonda
Marco Rotonda is a neuroscientist. He holds a doctorate in cognitive psychology, psychopsychology and Personality from the University of Rome La Sapienza. He graduated from La Sapizena with a degree in Psychology of Information and Representation of Knowledge with a thesis on neurofeedback. Marco has taken various advanced courses in the fields of neurofeedback, biofeedback and mental training in various countries; led by Peter Van Deusen, Vietta Sue Wilson, Lynda Kirk, the Thompson spouses, among others. In addition to neurofeedback, his interests include effective communication and hypnosis. He has followed courses in strategic psychology and neuro-linguisitic programming. Marco has also been a visiting lecturer at the University of Macerata.
Head, Scientific and Publications
Emanuela Russo is a licensed psychologist and a neuroscientist. She graduated in Clinical Psychology and has a doctorate in Cognitive Psychology and Psychophysiology from the “Sapienza” University of Rome. Her current research interest focuses on neural correlates of perception and attention as well as personality traits and cognitive-emotional states. In 2012, she received the ‘Best Young Researcher’ award at the IOP Congress in Pisa (Italy). In 2008, she was assistant lecturer in the faculty of Psychology at the “Sapienza” University of Rome. She has held seminars in Foundations of Clinical Psychology at the same University and on Psychology of Personality at the “Suor Orsola Benincasa” University of Naples. In 2013, she was appointed Adjunct Professor, lecturing on the Anatomical and Physiological bases of Psychic Activity at “Niccolò Cusano” University of Rome. She is an expert on neural signal activity. She has also been a reviewer for a several scientific journals.
Andre is a Biomedical Engineer. He graduated with a degree from the Cork Institute of Technology, Ireland, in 2014. He also completed a Work Internship at the Centre for Bio Medical Cybernetics at the University of Malta, where he worked on projects involving Motion Analysis and Infra-Red Camera Imaging. Prior to joining the Clinical Team at AAT Research, Andre worked as a Qualification Engineer with a large pharmaceutical company. His main area of interest is Orthopaedic and Rehabilitative Technologies and he has been accepted to read a Master’s in the subject at the University of Dundee, Scotland.
Sean Grech is Biomedical Engineer specialising in neurotechnology. He graduated Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Imperial College London; with emphasis on neuroscience, the design of Brain-Machine-Interface (BMI) systems and medical devices, and machine learning. His thesis centred on the development of novel mechanomyography (MMG) sensors for the measurement of muscular activity in the body. Prior to specialisation, Sean graduated with an honours degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Malta. His dissertation demonstrated the use of EMG signals to control a robotic arm in real-time. Sean worked for 2 years at Methode Electronics Malta as a student engineer under their Academy programme before joining AAT Research. He is an active member of IEEE and IPEM.
