Luca Selmi was born in Rome, Italy in 1961. He received the PhD degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Bologna in 1992. From April 1989 to June 1990 he was a visiting scientist at Hewlett Packard Microwave Technology Division, USA. Since 2000 he is full professor of electronics at the University of Udine, Italy, where he is currently responsible of a research group on nano-electronic devices.

His research interests are in the field of electron device modelling and characterization, with emphasis on CMOS scaling, Monte Carlo simulation techniques, hot carrier effects, quasi-ballistic transport, Non Volatile Memories (Floating gate, CHISEL-based, localized trapping, SONOS, TANOS) and semiconductor device reliability. He held technical and/or coordination responsibility in several EC research projects (ULIS, NESTOR, SINANO, PULL-NANO, NANOSIL, GOSSAMER, GRAND) in the field of micro- and nano-electronics. The research activities have been carried out in cooperation with many semiconductor research laboratories and companies worldwide, including Philips Research, NXP Semiconductors, Infineon Technologies, IMEC, LETI, IBM T.J.Watson Research Center, AT&T Bell Laboratories, Hewlett Packard.

He has served as technical program committee member of several electron device conferences (IEDM - twice, ESSDERC, INFOS, SISC, ULIS) and co-organizer of the INFOS 2001 and ULIS 2003 and 2008 conferences. He co-authored approximately 150 papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings including approximately 30 IEDM papers.
