Career overview

Alberto Gatti received the degree in Information Engineering and the M.Sc. degree in Electronic Engineering, both from the University of Padova, Italy, in 2014 and 2018 respectively.

From 2017 to 2019 he was with the IC design group (ICARUS Lab) of the same University, working in the field of integrated DC-DC converters for energy harvesting and low power applications. He is currently working as a research assistant at the MICAS laboratories of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KU Leuven), Leuven, Belgium towards the PhD degree.

Under the guidance of Prof. Filip Tavernier, he pioneered the field of cryogenic circuits and systems, laying the foundation for the quantum and cryogenic CMOS research domain at MICAS. His expertise includes extensive knowledge of cryogenic systems and materials, custom sample mount design and fabrication, device modeling and characterization, test structure design, and cryo-CMOS analog front ends.

His current research interest lies in the design of cryo-CMOS circuits for advanced experimental applications.
