Carlo Trigona received the Laurea degree (cum Laude) in Automation Engineering and Control of Complex Systems from University of Catania, Catania, Italy in 2006.

From 2006 to 2009 he was PhD student at the University of Catania and “visiting PhD student” at the at University of Barcelona/IMB-CNM (Spain), University of Montpellier/LIRMM (France) and several Universities in Italy. In 2010 he obtained his PhD degree in Electronic, Automation and Control of Complex Systems from University of Catania, Catania, Italy.

From 2010 to 2011, he worked as a post-doc at the University of Montpellier/LIRMM (France), from 2011 to 2017 as post-doc at the DIEEI, University of Catania (Italy) and from 2017 to 2018 he worked as a post-doc at the Chemnitz University of Technology (Germany). During his post-doctoral positions, he was “visiting researcher” in various Universities and research centers.

From 2010 to 2011, he also worked as a lecturer at the University of Montpellier and from 2012 to 2018 as a lecturer at the University of Catania in the field of instrumentation and measurements.

From 2018 to 2020, he worked as an Assistant Professor of Electronic Instrumentation and Measurements at the DIEEI, University of Catania (Italy). During this period, he was visiting researcher at the University of Zagreb-Department of Electronic Systems and Information Processing (Croatia), University of Franche-Comté-FEMTO-ST Besançon (France), and  at University of Oulu-Faculty of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (Finland) also as lecturer in the field of sensors and measurements.

Since 2020 he is a tenure track Professor of Electronic Instrumentation and Measurements at the DIEEI, University of Catania (Italy). Between February and March 2020, he was Visiting Professor at the École nationale supérieure de mécanique et des microtechniques (ENSMM), Besançon (France).

He teaches courses of Electrical and Electronic Measurements and Smart Energy Harvesting Devices.

He is involved in several national and international academic and engineering projects as coordinator and partner. Additionally, he contributes in the Instrumentation and Measurement community with several activities also including editor and reviewer for several prestigious journals starting from 2006, until now. Dr. Trigona received several awards for his research activity since 2007, including the 2020 IEEE I&M Outstanding Young Engineer Award for his outstanding contribution to the advancement of I&M concept in sensors and transducers for energy harvesting.

In 2011 and  2017 he received, in France and in Italy respectively, the National Scientific Habilitation to be Associate Professor.

In 2020, he obtained the Italian National Scientific Habilitation for the position of Full Professor.

Regarding his research activity, the first paper of Dr. Trigona appeared in 1997 and, at the moment, he is co-author of more than 200 scientific publications, with more than 1500 total citations, which include chapters in books, papers in international journals, proceedings of international conferences and patents. His research interests include sensors, transducers, MEMS, NEMS, fluxgate magnetometers, energy harvesting, green and biodegradable sensors, bacteria-based sensors and transducers.

A frequency transmission band of the nonlinear energy harvester are studied experimentally and numerically. For the analysis, the nonlinear piezoelectric energy harvesting system based on a cantilever elastic beam has been applied to harvest the kinetic energy of the moving frame. In modelling we used a double-well like potential induced
