Gian Domenico LICCIARDO Curriculum

Gian Domenico Licciardo was born in Naples, Italy, in 1974. He received the electronic engineering degree from University of Naples, “Federico II”, in 2002 and the PhD degree in information engineering from University of Salerno, Italy, in 2006. Since 2007 he is an Assistant Professor in Electronic at the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering  (DIEII) at the University of Salerno.

From 2006 to 2010 he has been in charge of teaching VLSI systems and laboratory of electronics at the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Salerno. Since 2010 he is in charge of teaching digital electronic and design of integrated electronic systems at the same Faculty. Moreover he collaborates with the professors of analog electronic and microelectronic technology courses.

His scientific interests covers the following areas:

  • Design and modeling of semiconductor devices where he has worked on the development of new techniques for the electrical characterization of silicon and silicon carbide. He is currently working on the design of a new power device in silicon carbide.
  • Design of integrated electronic systems where he has developed a processor for the compression of video images and a processor for the entropy coding of compressed videos. He is currently working on the development of a System-on-Chip for the image feature extraction.

He has been scientific coordinator of research projects funded from Ansaldo STS and STMicroelectronics. He currently acts as scientific coordinator for the (DIEII) of the Laboratorio della Campania per lo Studio della Microelettronica in collaboration with STMicroelectronics.
He acts as reviewer for international scientific journals (including IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology and Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Computers).
 
Dr. Licciardo is IEEE member from 2003 and from 2006 he is Treasurer of the IEEE Electron Device Chapter of Central and Southern Italy and coordinator of the ED student branch.
