Curriculum Vitae
I am staff researcher since 2012 and associate professor since 2017 at Padova University, where I regularly lecture for the Advanced Electronics Laboratory class for the master course in Physics. My research activities cover many fields within the framework of particle detectors electronics, scientific imaging systems development and radiation hardness of solid-state devices and systems.

I am committed to the development of innovative pixel detectors and systems for particle tracking and the realization of tracking apparatus employed in high energy physics experiments, as well as in applied sciences apparatus. I am currently convener of the Readout Electronics working group for the ALICE collaboration Inner Tracking System upgrade.

I am National Responsible for the INFN SEED project, which aims at the realization of monolithic, fully depleted and broad energy spectrum sensitive pixel imagers. I am co-owner of a specific patent covering the special sensor geometry developed within the project.

As past member of the CMS collaboration, I actively contributed to realization and testing of the pixel tracker for the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC, as well as the radiation tolerance characterization of the APV25 chip. I am currently researching the use of deep sub-micron technology to build the pixel detectors for the next-generation LHC experiments within the framework of the R&D53 collaboration.

My work on imaging systems includes the development of novel techniques for proton Computed Tomography and research in the field of Active Imaging systems, for which I have won an ERC Consolidator Grant funding a project for the realization of a ultra-fast innovative medical protons achromatic tracker and calorimeter (iMPACT).

I co-own a patent on innovative monolithic pixel sensor architectures developed while studying how to effectively address the challenge of instrumenting a full tracker with monolithic pixel detectors.

While being a visiting scientist at the Berkeley Laboratory (2006 – 2010) I developed monolithic pixel detectors for the realization of ultra-low material budget, high resolution tracker aimed to instrument the ILC/CLIC future collider. I also contributed to the realization of a MAPS focal plane detector for the TEAM sub-angstrom electronic microscope and its readout system, as well as to the development of the counting imaging technique.

Together with the development of new solid states sensors and imaging systems, I have long experience in radiation testing and assessment of integrated micro-electronic circuits, a field where I contributed to the realization of the IEEM nuclear microscope.

Also in the field of radiation hardness, I am currently leading the development of radiation-hard solutions for the implementation of the ALICE collaboration Inner Tracking System upgrade Readout Electronics.

I supervise and have supervised both graduate and undergraduate students in Padova, Berkeley and at CERN, as well as in international Physics schools.

I am regularly member of project evaluating panels for EU and non-EU funding programs.
