Paolo Colantonio was born in Roma on March 1969 and he received the electronic engineering and Ph.D degrees in Microelectronics and Telecommunications from University of Roma “Tor Vergata” in 1994 and 2000 respectively. In 1999 he became a research assistant at the Electronic Engineering Department of University of Roma “Tor Vergata” and since 2002 he has been a professor of microwave electronics at the same University and His research activities are mainly focused in the field of microwave and millimiter-wave electronic, and in particular on: - Characterization and modelling of both active and passive device for high frequency applications. The aim of this activity is model devices by means of electrical equivalent circuits, accounting for physical device properties, both at small signal (bias dependent model) and large signal (non linear and/or neural model) operating conditions. - Development of design methodologies for non linear circuit, based on harmonic balance techniques. Important contribute have been produced about analysis and synthesis of non linear power amplifiers, frequency multipliers and mixers. - Design criteria for high frequency non linear circuits, as for instance high efficient and high linear power amplifiers, frequency multipliers and active or passive mixers Since 2002 he is a lecturer of the Short Course on Power Amplifier Design organised in the frame of the European Microwave Week (mayor Microwave electronics event in Europe). He is author or co-author of more than 100 papers on PA design published in referred journals or international conference proceedings. Paolo Colantonio is a reviewer for international conferences (EuMW, INMMIC, MiKON, COMITE) and journals (IEEE Trans. on MTT, IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, Solid-State Electronics, International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer Aided Engineering).
