Sautto, Marco

Ph.D. candidate
He was born in Modena, Italy, in 1988. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. (both with honors) in Electronic Engineering from University of Modena e Reggio Emilia (Italy) in 2010 and 2013, respectively.

Since September 2012 he is working with STMicroelectronics on the design of analog front-end ICs for MEMS ultrasound transducers.

In November 2013 he started working towards the Ph.D. in Microelectronics at University of Pavia, under the supervision of Prof. Andrea Mazzanti.
