Speaker’s Bio:

Felice Crupi received the M.S. degree in electronic engineering from the University of Messina, Italy, in 1997 and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Firenze, Italy, in 2001. Since 2002, he has been with the University of Calabria, Italy, as an Associate Professor of Electronics. Since 1998, he has been a repeat Visiting Scientist with the Interuniversity Micro-Electronics Center (IMEC), Leuven, Belgium. In 2000, he was a Visiting Scientist with the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, Yorktown Heights, NY.  His main research interests include reliability of CMOS devices, electrical characterization techniques for solid state electronic devices, modeling and simulation of CMOS devices, the design of ultra‑low noise electronic instrumentation and the design of extremely low power CMOS circuits. He has authored and coauthored more than 150 papers published in peer-reviewed journals and in international conference proceedings. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Device and Materials Reliability (TDMR). He served as a technical program committe member of the IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) and the IEEE International Reliability Physics Symposium (IRPS). He has been the Coordinator of several international research projects in the field of semiconductor devices and circuits.
