Curriculum: 

Alberto Roncaglia received a M. Sc. Degree in Electrical Engineering and a Ph.  D. degree in Electronics and Computer Science in 1998 and 2002, respectively, both from Bologna University. In 2001 he joined the  Institute  of  Microelectronics  and Microsystems  (IMM)  of  the Italian  National  Research  Council  (CNR) as a permanent staff member. His research activity is mainly focused on technology development for Micro- and Nano-Electro-Mechanical and Opto-Mechanical Systems (MEMS, NEMS and MOMS), with particular concern about manufacturing techniques but also including design, simulation and readout electronics issues. His research experience within international collaborative projects dates back to the period 2002-2005, when he worked on the development of CMOS-compatible thermoelectric infrared microsensors within FP5 Netgas project (http://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/63973_en.html), focused on an innovative technology for manufacturing photoacoustic gas-sensing systems. Since October 2006 until June 2009, he worked on the design and fabrication of MEMS resonant strain sensors in the  framework of the Eurocores “Underground M3” project (S3T ESF programme) as a Principal Investigator. Since November 2013, he has been coordinating the research activity of IMM Institute within the two FP7 projects ROBO-SPECT (http://www.robo-spect.eu) and SiNERGY (http://www.sinergy-project.eu), focused on different applications of silicon-based MOMS/NEMS devices. Since December 2015, he has been working as a research unit coordinator within the H2020 AEROBI project (http://www.aerobi.eu). In the last years, he has also worked as a project coordinator in applied research projects funded within national and regional programmes for industrial research (Industria 2015, POR-FESR Emilia Romagna).
