Marco Parvis was born in Italy in 1958. He graduated with honors in Electrical Engineering in 1982 at the Polytechnic of Turin. In 1987 he obtained the title of PhD in Metrology: Science and Technique of Measurements.
He is now full professor in the scientific / disciplinary sector ING-INF 07 - 09E4 (formerly K10X) Electrical and Electronic Measurements at the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications of the Polytechnic of Turin. He was President of the Information sector of the II Faculty of Engineering based in Vercelli where he also held the role of Dean from 2008 until the Faculty's decommissioning.
He is a Fellow Member of the IEEE Society on Instrumentation and Measurement where he also holds the position of chair of the technical committee 25 measures in the medical field. Since 2017 he is an IEEE Officer as Vice President Member Services of the IEEE System Council.Marco Parvis is the founder of the Symposium Medical Measurements and Applications (MeMeA), which has been held annually since 2006 with 100-150 participants. In 2016 Marco Parvis was selected as General Chair of the 2017 edition of the Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference (I2MTC 2017), which was held at the Politecnico di Torino with about 350 works presented.
His main fields of interest are intelligent instrumentation, the applications of signal processing to measurements and measurements in the medical and chemical fields.
Currently, as part of an interdepartmental collaboration with the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering, he is mainly involved in the development of sensors for chemical and physical quantities based on surface modification processes through plasma sputtering. He is the author of more than 100 publications.
