Luca Donetti received the M.S. degree in physics from the University of Parma, (Parma, Italy) in 1998 and the Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Milano (Milan, Italy) in 2002. During his first two postdoc years (University of Milano-Bicocca, Milan, Italy, 2002-2003 and at University of Granada, Spain, 2003-2004), he studied statistical mechanics on complex graphs and networks and the related problems of community detection, synchronization and topological optimization. Since 2005, he has been working at the Department of Electronics at the University of Granada. His current research interests include the simulation of electron and hole transport and magnetotransport properties in nanoscale electronic devices, including silicon-on-insulator devices and nanowires, with particular focus on bandstructure effects (with different models and approximations, from effective mass and k·p models to atomistic ones) and the consequences of phonon confinement.
