Claudio Bruschini (M’12 SM’17) received the Laurea degree in physics from the University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy, in 1992, and the Ph.D. degree in applied sciences from Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium, in 2002. He is currently a Scientist with EPFL’s Advanced Quantum Architecture Laboratory. His scientific interests have spanned from high energy physics and parallel computing in the early days, to challenging sensor applications in humanitarian demining, concentrating since 2003 on quantum photonic devices, high-speed and time-resolved 2D/3D optical sensing, as well as applications thereof (biophotonics, nuclear medicine, basic sciences, security, ranging).
He has authored or co-authored over 130 articles and conference proceedings and one book; he was the co-recipient of the 2012 European Photonics Innovation Award and co-recipient of the Image Sensors Europe 2019 Award in the category "Best Academic Research Team", as well as Swiss Medtech Award 2016 finalists (development of a new hand-held standalone tool for radiotracer- and fluorescence guided medical procedures). He is an IEEE Senior Member and co-founder of one start-up to commercialise selected AQUA lab SPAD designs.
