**Full Professor**

He received the Laurea and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Università di Pavia, Italy, in 1991 and 1995, respectively. During 1995-1997 he held an industry grant for research in RF CMOS. In 1997 he was appointed Assistant Professor at Università di Bergamo, and in 2000, he joined Università di Pavia, where he is now Full Professor. His current interests are in the field of RF and high speed integrated circuits.

Dr. Svelto has been technical advisor of RFDomus Inc., a start-up he co-founded in 2002 dedicated to highly integrated GPS receivers. After merging with Glonav Inc. (Ireland), RFDomus has been acquired by NXP Semiconductors in 2007.

Presently he is the Director of the Studio di Microelettronica, a joint scientific laboratory between Università di Pavia and STMicrolectronics, dedicated to research in Microelectronics, with emphasis to mm-wave systems for wireless communications, high-speed serial links and read-write channels for hard disk-drives.

Dr. Svelto is member of the technical program committee of the *International Solid State Circuits Conference* and has been a member of *Custom Integrated Circuits Conference*, Bipolar/ BiCMOS Circuits Technology Meeting and *European Solid State Circuits Conference*. He served as Associate Editor of *IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits* (2003-2007), and as Guest Editor for a special issue on the same journal in March 2003.

He is co-recipient of the *IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits* 2003 Best Paper Award, and he has been elevated *IEEE Fellow* in 2013.
