Sergio Callegari received a D.Eng. degree (with honors) in electronic engineering and a Ph.D. degree in electronic engineering and computer science from the University of Bologna, Italy, in 1996 and 2000, respectively, working on the study of nonlinear circuits and chaotic systems. In 1996, he was working at King’s College London, UK. He is currently a Researcher and an Assistant Professor at the School of Engineering II, University of Bologna, Italy where he teaches analog electronics, applied analog electronics and sensing. He is also a Faculty Member of the Advanced Research Center on Electronic Systems (ARCES), Bologna, Italy. In 2008, 2009, and 2010, he was, for short periods, a Visiting Researcher at the University of Washington in Seattle, Wash, USA. His research interests include sensor design, nonlinear signal processing, internally-nonlinear-externally-linear networks, chaotic maps, testing of analog circuits, and random number generation. He has authored or coauthored more than 60 papers in international conferences, journals, and scientific books and deposited 4 national patents. In 2004, he was the corecipient of the IEEE Circuit and Systems Society Darlington Award. He served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems: Part II (during 2006-2007) and Part I (during 2008-2009). He is a Member of the Technical Committee on Nonlinear Circuits and Systems and of the Technical Committee on Education and Outreach of the IEEE CAS Society. Dr. Callegari has also served as a Member of the Organization Committee and Publication Cochair of NOLTA 2006 (Bologna), as a Member of the Organization Committee of Eurodoc 2006 (Bologna), and as a Special-Session Cochair of NOLTA 2010 (Krakow). In 2005 till 2007, he was a Member of the Board of the Italian Society of Doctoral Candidates and Ph.D. Graduates (ADI), and currently he is on the Board of AIR, a national society for the promotion of scientific research.
