Marco Consales


Marco Consales was born on December 11,1979, in Benevento, Italy.

He received the Master degree in Telecommunications Engineering (110/110 cum laude) in January 2004 from the University of Naples “Federico II”. In March 2004, he started his activity in the Engineering Department of the University of Sannio in Benevento, working on the development of optical fiber sensors for environmental monitoring.

In May 2004 he won a fellowship for the XIX Ph.D. course in “Information Engineering” (with tutors the Prof. Antonello Cutolo and Prof. Andrea Cusano), which has been focused on the development of fiber optic sensors based on nanostructured functional materials.

He received the Ph.D. Degree in “Information Engineering” from the University of Sannio in 2007. In the same year, he was awarded with the “IEEE-LEOS Best Doctoral Thesis Award in Optoelectronics” from the IEEE-LEOS Italian Chapter. In 2007 he also received the “SPIE Best Student Paper Award” within the “3rd European Workshop on Optical Fiber Sensors”, where he presented a work focused on an innovative near-field optical fiber sensor integrated with microstructured SnO2 layers.

Since 2009 he is cooperating with the prestigious European Organization for Nuclear Research - CERN, in Geneve, where he is working on the development of innovative fiber optic sensors for high energy physics applications.

In May 2011 he won a permanent position as Assistant Professor (ING/INF 01) at the University of Sannio in Benevento. His research activity is currently focused on the area of optoelectronics for sensing and telecommunications applications with particular interest is in the field of the lab-on-fiber based devices.

He is Editor-in-Chief of the the Nanomaterials and Naotechnology journal ("Nanophotonics topic") and member of the Editorial Board of the journals: Journal of Sensors, Advances in Optics, Advances in Materials Science and Engineering and Journal of Nanotechnology in Diagnosis and Treatment.

He also serves as referee for well-known journals of the Institute of Physics and of IEEE, as IEEE Journal of Lightwave Technology, IEEE Sensors, Nanotechnology and Measurements science and Technologies.

He has been also invited by Springer Verlag, together with Prof. Cusano and other co-workers from the same University, as expert in the field, to edit a book on “Lab on Fiber” technology, which will be published in 2013.

Since 2004 he has been carrying out an intensive research activity concerning the development of fiber optic sensing systems, as revealed by two national patents, 10 invited book chapters, more than 35 publications on scientific journals and more than 60 publications on proceedings of national and international conferences.

He received several recognitions and awards (either national or international) for his efforts in the development of innovative fiber optic sensing systems

Since 2006 he is in charge of several classes in the Electronics field at University of Sannio, he has been co-tutor of numerous Bachelor and Master theses in Optoelectronics, and he supported Prof. Cutolo and Prof. Cusano in supervisioning several PhD students.
