Cristian Cassella received the B.S.E. and M.Sc. degrees (Hons.) from the University of Rome Tor Vergata in 2006 and 2009, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from Carnegie Mellon University in 2015. In 2011, he was a Visiting Scholar at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2015, he was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at Northeastern University. In 2016, he became an Associate Research Scientist. Later, in 2018, he became a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Northeastern University in Boston (USA). He has been an Associate Professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Northeastern University since 2023. He is the author of nearly 100 publications in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings. Two of his peer-reviewed journal articles published on the IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems (JMEMS) were selected as Papers of Excellent Quality (JMEMS RightNowPapers), hence being released as open-access. One of his journal articles was chosen as the cover for the Nature Nanotechnology October 2017 Issue. Another one of his journal articles was selected as a featured article by the Applied Physics Letters magazine. He holds six patents and four patent applications in the area of acoustic resonators and RF systems. In 2018, he was awarded by the European Community (EU) the Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship. In 2021, he was a recipient of the NSF Career Award. He received the Best Student Paper Award at the IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium in 2013, 2021, (with his student), 2022 (with his student) and 2023 (with his student). He is a Technical Reviewer of several journals, such as Applied Physics Letters, IEEE Transactions On Electron Devices, IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectric and Frequency Control, IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, IEEE Electron Device Letters, Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, Journal of Applied Physics, IEEE Sensors Letters, IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, IEEE Microwave and Wireless Technology Letters, and Review of Scientific Instruments.
