About the Author

PhD in Solid-state Physics at Purdue University (Indiana, USA) in 1969. Since then at the University of Modena with successive positions from research-assistant to Dean of the School of Sciences. Published 3 books and about 170 papers in the field of semiclassical and quantum theory of electron transport in semiconductors. His main contributions are related to the Monte Carlo simulation of electron transport in materials and devices, and to the application of the Wigner-function formalism to quantum transport.
