Andrea Bandini

Andrea Bandini is an Assistant Professor at the Interdisciplinary Research Center "Health Science" at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (Pisa, Italy). Additionally, he is an Adjunct Scientist at KITE - Toronto Rehabilitation Institute - University Health Network (Canada), where he previously held a post-doctoral position until 2021. At KITE, he collaborates with the Steele Swallowing Lab. 

Dr. Bandini earned his PhD in Bioengineering from the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2016. Before this, he achieved a master’s degree in biomedical engineering (2012) and a bachelor’s degree in electronic engineering (2010) from the University of Florence (Italy).

His primary research objective is to improve access to healthcare and optimize interventions for individuals with neurological disorders. Driven by this goal, he develops multi-modal and intelligent tools for remote clinical assessment. His research is at the intersection of artificial intelligence, computer vision, biomedical signal processing, and rehabilitation engineering, focusing on neurological disorders and aging. Dr. Bandini's research interests encompass the development of signal and image processing algorithms, specifically targeting assessments related to speech, swallowing, and upper limb functions.
