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.
