Short biography

David Esseni received the Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna (Italy) in 1999. During year 2000 he was a visiting scientist at Bell Labs - Lucent Technologies, Murray Hill (NJ-USA). Since 2015 he is Full Professor at the University of Udine (ITALY). In year 2013 he received a Fulbright Fellowship and spent a semester as a visiting professor at the University of Notre Dame (Indiana, USA). His research contributions are mainly devoted to the physics, the modeling and characterization and the design of advanced CMOS, beyond CMOS transistors and non-volatile memories. D.Esseni is the author of numerous papers in international journals and conferences and of several invited contributions. He is co-author of the book "Nanoscale MOS transistors: Semi-classical transport and application" (Cambridge Univerity Press), of several book chapters devoted to different topics related to transport in nanoscale MOSFETs and of the textbook in Italian "Fondamenti di Circuiti Digitali Integrati CMOS" (SGEditoriali, Padova (ITALY), 2006) dealing with the basics of digital integrated circuits.
Since september 2008 D.Esseni has been Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices (TED) and he has been co-guest Editor of two special issues of IEEE TED devoted respectively to the simulation and modeling of nanoelectronics devices (sept. 2007) and to the characterization and modeling of the variability (aug. 2011), and of a special issue published on IEEE Journal of Electron Devices (2015) focused on small slope, tunneling transistors. He has served or is serving in the technical committee of several international conferences including the International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM), the International Reliability Physics Symposium (IRPS) and the European Solid State Device Research Conference (ESSDERC). He is a member of the Technology Computer Aided Design Committee of the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS).
D.Esseni is a Fellow of the IEEE Electron Devices Society "for contributions to characterization and modeling of mobility and quasi-ballistic transport in MOS transistors".
He has been the principal investigator and/or the person responsible for the University of Udine in several research projects funded either by the Italian Ministry of University or by the European Community. He is also the responsible for industry driven projects in the field of advanced CMOS technologies.
