Giovanni Ghione - Editor-in-Chief
Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, Torino, Italy
Giovanni Ghione graduated cum laude in Electronic Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Torino Italy in 1981. He was Assistant Professor in Electromagnetic Fields since 1983, Associate Professor in Circuit Theory with Politecnico di Milano, Milano Italy since 1987, and finally Full Professor in Electronics since 1990, first with University of Catania, then again with Politecnico di Torino. His research activity has been mainly concerned with high-frequency electronics and optoelectronics. He has contributed to the physics-based modelling of compound semiconductor devices, with particular interest in the numerical noise modeling in the small- and large-signal regimes, in the thermal modeling of devices and integrated circuits, and in the modeling of widegap semiconductors devices and materials. He has also done research in the field of microwave electronics, with contributions in the modeling of passive elements, in particular coplanar components, and in the design of power MMICs. Prof. Ghione was actively engaged since 1985 in research on optoelectronic devices, with application to the modeling and design of near and far-IR photodetectors, electrooptic and electroabsorption modulators, and GAN-based LEDs. Prof. Ghione has authored or co-authored more than 300 research papers on the above subjects and five books. He is an IEEE Fellow (class 2007). He has been a member of the QPC subcommitee of IEDM in 1997-1998 and in 2006-2007 and Chair in 2008; in 2009-2010 he was the EU Arrangement Co-Chair of IEDM. From 2010 to 2015 he has been chair of the EDS Committee on Compound Semiconductor Devices and Circuits. He has been Chair of the GAAS2003 conference and he has been subcommittee chair in several SCs of the European Microwave Week. He was President of the Library System of Politecnico from 1997 to 2007. From 2007 to 2015 he was the Head of the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications of Politecnico di Torino.
Ru Huang - MOS Devices and Technology
Ru Huang (M’98–SM’06) received the B.S. (highest honors) and M.S. degrees in electronic engineering from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in 1991 and 1994, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in microelectronics from Peking University, Beijing, China, in 1997. In 1997, she joined the faculty of Peking University, where she is currently a Professor and the Head of the Department of Microelectronics. Since 2000, she has been the leader of several State Key Research Projects of China in device research and IC fabrication technology research, including major state basic research projects, 863 national projects, the key project from National Natural Science Foundation, as well as several collaborative projects with Samsung, Intel and Fujitsu Corporations. Her research interests include nano-scaled CMOS devices, nonvolatile memory devices and new devices for RF and harsh environment applications. She holds 21 granted patents, and has authored/co-authored 4 books and over 180 papers, including many conference invited papers. Dr. Huang is the winner of the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars and many other awards in China, including the National Youth Science Award, Science and Technology Progress Award from Ministry of Information Industry and Ministry of Education. She serves as a member of IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) AdCom and the associate chief editor of Science in China. She was the Technical Program Co-Chair of the 7th and 9th International Conference on Solid State and Integrated Circuit Technology (ICSICT 2004 and 2008), a Far East Committee Member of the 2004 International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC), and committee members of many other international conferences and symposiums.
Sarah Kurtz - PV Reliability
MBSE Graduate Group Chair
Dr. Sarah Kurtz received her PhD from Harvard University in Chemical Physics in 1985 with Roy Gordon. She moved directly to the Solar Energy Research Institute (now the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, NREL) where she worked for more than 30 years on a variety of solar energy projects. She is known for her contributions to developing multijunction, GaInP/GaAs solar cells, supporting the Concentrator Photovoltaic (PV) industry, and, more recently, her work with PV performance and reliability. Her work has been recognized with a jointly received Dan David Prize in 2007, the Cherry Award in 2012, and the C3E Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016. In late 2017 she transitioned to a faculty position at the University of California at Merced, while continuing work with NREL.
