Dr. Erica Forzani will introduce the latest findings on energy expenditure, and ketones monitoring during high intensity training.  Also addressed will be ketonic diets from very recent pilot studies performed at the Arizona State University Biodesign Institute.Dr. Forzani has a joint appointment with ASU’s Center for Bioelectronics & Biosensors (CBB) at The Biodesign Institute, and she is Deputy Director of CBB. She received her Ph.D. in Chemistry and B.S. in Biochemistry at Cordoba National University in Argentina.

Prior to join ASU, she received prestigious fellowships from the Argentinian Research Council to support her Ph.D. and postdoctoral studies in Argentina. She came to ASU in 2003 as postdoctoral research associate of the Department of Electrical Engineering; where later she worked as Assistant Research Professor. Dr Forzani became Assistant Professor in SEMTE in Fall 2010. Dr. Forzani’s current research interests are the development of novel hybrid chemical and biosensors and the integration of sensors into wireless, non-invasive and inexpensive sensor devices. She is focused on health applications, and environmental health and safety. Currently, she has over 40 peer-reviewed publications, seven patent applications and two transferred intellectual properties. In addition, she has served as Guest Editor of Nanotechnology Journal, and is member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Biosensors and Bioelectronics. Expertise: Chemical and biosensors, non-invasive sensors, sensor integration, wireless and lab-on-cell-phone sensors.
