Portrait of Marco Bonizzato

Marco Bonizzato

Associate Academic Member
Assistant Professor, Polytechnique Montréal, Department of Electrical Engineering
Adjunct Professor, Université de Montréal, Department of Neurosciences


Marco Bonizzato is a control, electrical and life sciences engineer with over ten years’ experience in implantable brain-computer interfaces and neuromodulation technology. He has unique double expertise in (a) neural prostheses, and (b) machine intelligence and optimization.

Bonizzato is an assistant professor of electrical engineering at Polytechnique Montréal and an adjunct professor of neuroscience at Université de Montréal.

He also directs the Polytechnique’s sciNeurotech Lab, whose research goal is to develop the entire translational arc of new neurostimulation therapies aimed at restoring sensorimotor function after neurotrauma—from discovery in rodents to application in human medical technologies tailored and personalized to the user using AI.
