Gianluca Fiori received his MSEE and Ph.D. in electrical engineering in 2001 and 2005, respectively. In autumn 2002, he was with Silvaco International, developing quantum models, which are currently implemented in the commercial simulator ATLAS by Silvaco. In summer 2004, 2005 and 2008, he was with Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, working on models for the simulation of transport in nanoscaled devices. Since December 2007, he is an Assistant Professor with the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell’Informazione, Università di Pisa.
His main field of activity includes the development of models and codes for the simulations of ultrascaled semiconductor devices, with particular attention to carbon based devices (Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene Field Effect Transistors).
Dr. Fiori has participated to several networks of excellence founded by the European Community like SINANO and NANOSIL. He has also partecipated to the NANOTCAD project, developing codes for the simulation of three-dimensional devices based on Silicon and III-V compound, as well as to the European projects PULLNANO, and GRAND, in which he has been mainly involved in the evaluation of the performance of carbon nanotubes and graphene nanoribbon devices.
Gianluca Fiori serves as referee for the leading journals in the fields of semiconductor physics, and device electronics.
