Prof. Fernando Corinto
Department of Electronics and Telecommunications, Politecnico di Torino

Dr. Fernando Corinto received the Masters' Degree in Electronic Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering from the Politecnico di Torino, in 2001 and 2005 respectively. He also received the European Doctorate from the Politecnico di Torino, in 2005. For the period January 2004-May 2004, he had a temporary full-time appointment as Marie Curie Fellow (within the 'Marie Curie Actions' under the Sixth Framework Programme). He is currently an Assistant Professor in Circuit Theory with the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications at Politecnico di Torino. His research activity mainly lies in the area of nonlinear nanoscale circuits and locally coupled nonlinear networks. Dr. Corinto is coauthor of more than 80 international journal and conference papers. He has been reviewer of several papers for international journals and conferences. Since 2010, he is Senior Member of the IEEE. He is also Member of the IEEE CAS Technical Committees on “Cellular Nanoscale Networks and Array Computing” and “Nonlinear Circuits and Systems”. Dr. Corinto is the Technical Program Chair for the 13th International Workshop on Cellular Nanoscale Networks and their Applications and the co-organizer of the 3rd Memristor Symposium. Dr. Corinto is Visiting Professor at Peter Pazmany Catholic University of Budapest, since 2007.

In 2005, Dr. Corinto was awarded a two-year Research Fellowship (supported by CRT Foundation) within the Lagrange Project. The goal of this project was to realize a bio-inspired information processing artificial system, by exploiting cellular nanoscale/nonlinear network based devices, for spatial-temporal computation. Project cost 60000 €.
