Alessandro Cidronali (M'89–SM'11) received the Laurea and Ph.D. degrees in electronics engineering from the University of Florence, Florence, Italy, in 1992 and 1997, respectively. From 1999 to 2011, he was an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, University of Florence. 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, Electromagnetic Division, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Under the frame of the IST-EU FP6 Network TARGET (IST-1-507893-NOE), he was Workpackage Leader for the transmitters modeling/architectures for wireless broadband access' work packages. He is currently an Associate Professor with the Department of Information Engineering, University of Florence, where he teaches courses on electron devices and integrated microwave circuits. His research activities concern the study of analysis and synthesis methods for nonlinear microwave circuits, the design of broadband microwave integrated circuits and the development of computer-aided design (CAD) 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 TRANSACTION ON MICROWAVE THEORY AND TECHNIQUES. He is currently a member of the IEEE MTT-S TC-20 Wireless Communications and TC-27 Vehicular Technologies and Communications.
