Lorenzo Scalise was born in Siena, Italy, in 1971. He received the Laurea degree in 1996 from the Università degli Studi di Ancona in Electronic Engineering and the title of Ph.D. degree in Measurement Technique at the Università degli Studi di Padova, Italy, in 1999. From January 1999 to October 1999 he was a visiting researcher at the Bio-optics research group of the Faculty of the Applied Physics of the Universiteit Twente, The Netherlands, where he has developed part of his PhD thesis entitled "Progetto e sviluppo di un sensore ottico a retro-iniezione per la misura di velocità: Sviluppo di un modello teorico ed applicazione per la misura intra-vascolare del flusso sanguigno". Since 2000, he is technician at the Department of Industrial Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (DIISM, former the Dipartimento di Meccanica) of the Università Politecnica delle Marche, Italy.

He is member of: IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers), SPIE (International Society for Optics and Photonics), SEM (Society of Experimental Mechanics) and IALM (International Academy of Laser Medicine and Surgery).
