Alberto Santarelli received his Laurea degree (summa cum laude) in Electronic Engineering in 1991 and his Ph.D. in Electronics and Computer Science from the University of Bologna, Italy in 1996. He was a Research Assistant from 1996 to 2001 with the Research Centre for Computer Science and Communication Systems of the Italian National Research Council (IEIIT-CNR). In 2001, he joined the Department of Electronics, Computer Science and Systems (DEIS) at University of Bologna, where he currently is an Associate Professor. During his academic career he has been a Lecturer of Applied Electronics, Industrial Electronics, and Electronics for Communications. His main research interests are in the field of the empirical modelling of electron devices, the modelling and characterization of low-frequency dispersive phenomena in III-V FETs and the circuit design for nonlinear microwave applications. In 1995, 1998 and 2001 he received best paper awards at the 25th EuMC, GAAS98 and GAAS2001, respectively. He serves as peer reviewer of IEEE Trans. of Microwave Theory and Tech., IEEE Trans. on Circuit and Systems II and acts in different review boards of international conferences. He is responsible of international student exchanges (Erasmus programme) with prestigious European Universities (Leuven, Darmstadt, Ulm, Oulu, Oviedo, Santander, Valencia, Vigo, Reims) in relation to ICT subjects. Alberto Santarelli has been local scientific responsible in the framework of research programmes with the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and has taken part in the Network of Excellence TARGET (Top Amplifier Research Group in a European Team) of the EU VI-Framework Programme.
