Alessandro Cidronali (M89, SM 10) is an Associate Professor of Electronics at the Department of Information Engineering, University of Florence, where he teaches courses on electron devices and integrated microwave circuits. From 1999 to 2003, he was a Visiting Researcher with the Motorola Physics Science Research Laboratory. From 2002 to 2005, he was a Guest Researcher with the Non-Linear Device Characterization Group, at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Under the frame of the IST-EU FP6 Network TARGET (IST-1-507893-NOE), he served as workpackage leader for the transmitters modeling/architectures for wireless broadband access work packages. His research activities cover the study of analysis and synthesis methods for nonlinear microwave circuits, the design of broadband monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs) and the development of modeling for microwave devices and circuits. Prof. Cidronali was recipient of the Best Paper Award presented at the 61st ARFTG Conference. From 2004 to 2006, he was an associate editor for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON MICROWAVE THEORY AND TECHNIQUES. Prof. Cidronali is a member of the IEEE TC-20 Wireless Technologies MTT Technical Committee.
