Brief Biography:

Pierluigi received the Laurea degree in electrical engineering (summa cum laude) from the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2003, and the Diploma in engineering (summa cum laude) from the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, Pisa, in 2004. Since 2008, he has joined the University of California at Berkeley, where is currently working towards the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and computer sciences, advised by Prof. Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli.

He held research positions at the University of Pisa (2004-2006) and IMEC, Leuven, Belgium (2006-2008), working on the design of energy-efficient A/D converters, frequency synthesizers for reconfigurable radio, and design methodologies for mixed-signal integrated circuits. Pierluigi received First Place in the operational category and Best Overall Submission in the 2006 DAC/ISSCC Design Competition, the Marie Curie fellowship from the European Union in 2006, the 2008-2009 EECS departmental Ph.D. fellowship, the 2012-2013 IBM Ph.D. Fellowship, and the 2013 U.C. Berkeley Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award.
