Biography

Andre L. Mansano was born in Jaboticabal, Brazil, in 1982. He received the Bachelors degree in electrical engineering from the Universidade Estadual Paulista, São Paulo, Brazil, and the M.Sc. degree from the Universidade Estadual de Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil, in 2006 and 2009, respectively.

In 2010 he joined Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, as a guest researcher, where he is currently pursuing his Ph.D. degree. In 2007, he joined Freescale Semiconductor Brazil as an analog/mixed-signal designer, where he designed analog IPs for 8-bit and 32-bit microcontrollers. His IP portfolio, mainly intended for the automotive industry, comprises power management controllers, switched-capacitor amplifiers, crystal oscillators and regulated charge pumps.

He has authored four scientific publications and has been granted two patents. His research interests include wireless energy harvesting, low-power sensors, ultra-low power management techniques and broadband wireless communications.
