Egidio Ragonese was born in Catania, Italy, in 1974. He received the Laurea degree in electrical engineering (magna cum laude) and the Ph.D. degree in electronics and automation engineering from the University of Catania, Catania, Italy, in 1999 and 2003, respectively. Since 1999 he has been with the Radio Frequency Advanced Design Center (RF-ADC), a joint research center supported by the University of Catania (DIEEI) and STMicroelectronics. In 2003 and 2008, he joined the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Catania as Research Associate and Research Assistant Professor, respectively. Since October 2011, he has been with STMicroelectronics, Catania, Italy. He was involved in the design and development of silicon-integrated transceivers for wireless communications (e.g., cellular, W-LAN, ultra-wideband, and DVB-S applications). His research interests also included the optimization and modeling of silicon-integrated passive devices and monolithic filtering techniques for wireless systems. In last years, he has been active in the field of mm-wave integrated circuits in SiGe HBT BiCMOS and sub-µm CMOS processes for communication, radar and medical applications. Ragonese is coauthor of more than 60 papers in international journals and conference proceedings, several patents, and a book on integrated inductors and transformers for RF and mm-wave applications.
