Curriculum Vitae
Simone Gerardin received the Laurea degree (cum laude) in Electronics Engineering in 2003, and a Ph.D. in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering in 2007, both from the University of Padova – Italy, where he is now an Associate Professor of Electronics.
His research has been focused on soft and hard errors induced by ionizing radiation in advanced CMOS technologies, and on their interplay with device aging and electrostatic discharges. During his research career, he worked on several technologies and devices, ranging from deep-submicron MOSFETs, FinFETs, and tunnel FETs to microprocessors and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA). In recent years, he has been focusing on Non-Volatile Memories (NVM, including floating gate cells with 3D architecture, charge trap, resistive, and phase-change technologies) and ultra-high dose effects in MOSFETs for high-energy physics experiments.
He took part in several Italian and European projects and collaborated with space agencies (ESA-ESTEC, NASA-JPL, and ASI), research institutions (CERN, RAL, IMEC, INFN), universities, and semiconductor and space companies (STMicroelectronics, Numonyx, Micron, Actel, Thales Alenia Space), both in Europe and in the USA.
He has authored or co-authored about one hundred papers published in international peer-reviewed journals and more than 100 conference presentations, ten of which won awards at the RADiation and its Effects on Components and Systems (RADECS) 2007, Nuclear Space Radiation Effects Conference (NSREC) 2008, RADECS 2008, NSREC 2009, RADECS 2010 (2), NSREC 2013, NSREC 2014, RADECS 2016 (2). He also wrote three book chapters and coedited a book in 2016 about radiation effects in electronics devices edited by CRC Press.
He presented seminars and invited talks about his research activities to universities, research institutions, and companies in the USA, China, Brazil, and across Europe.
He has been a short course instructor at RADECS 2009, NSREC 2010, RADECS 2015, illustrating basic mechanisms of radiation effects, non-volatile memories for space, and new effects in advanced components, respectively.
In 2005 he received the Phelps Continuing Education Grant from the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society (NPSS).
He has been session chair at RADECS, at NSREC, and at the European Symposium on Reliability of Electron Devices, Failure Physics and Analysis (ESREF). He co-organized a thematic workshop on NVMs at RADECS 2010. He has been the short course chair for NSREC 2018 and the technical program chair for NSREC 2019. From to 2014 to 2017 he has been member-at-large of the IEEE NPSS radiation effects steering group.
From 2010 to 2018 he has been an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, and he has been a guest editor for Semiconductor Science Technology in 2015, in addition to being a reviewer for several scientific journals.
