Biography

Alessandro Urso was born in Lecce, Italy, in 1991. He received the Bachelors degree and the M.Sc. degree cum Laude both in Electronic and Telecommunications engineering from University of Ferrara, Italy in 2013 and 2015, respectively. He is currently working towards the Ph.D. degree at the Department of Microelectronics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science, Delft University of Technology. His research interests include low-power analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits design and energy harvesting for autonomous wireless sensor nodes.
