Filippo Mele was born in Rome, Italy in 1991. He received B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electronics Engineering at “Sapienza” University of Rome, and the Ph.D. degree cum laude in information technology at Politecnico di Milano in 2021. From 2015 to 2017, he joined Infineon Technologies (Padua) as an Analog/Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuits (IC) designer, working on switched-mode power supply (SMPS) ICs for Advanced Driving Assistant System (ADAS) applications. He is currently a Research Associate (RTD-A) at Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering of Politecnico di Milano in the Semiconductor Devices and Integrated Circuits Laboratory.
His research interests include nuclear microelectronics and low-noise analog circuits for semiconductor radiation detectors, with main application in radiation instrumentation for material inspection for recycling processes, food safety and security control, as well as detection systems for synchrotron-light X-ray spectroscopy experiments. He is also involved in the development of low-power, high-energy-resolution Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) for several spaceborne astrophysics experiments, in collaboration with the Italian National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF) and University of Pavia.
He is an IEEE member, active in the Nuclear and Plasma Science Society, serving as peer-reviewer for the Transactions on Nuclear Science journal. He is technological associate of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN), and ordinary member of the Italian Society of Electronics (SIE) in the Sensors, Microsystems and Instrumentation research area.
