Pierluigi Nuzzo - Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering beginning Fall 2016
Pierluigi Nuzzo is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, under the supervision of Prof. Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli, who was also his PhD Advisor. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from UC Berkeley in August 2015. His dissertation title was “Compositional Design of Cyber-Physical Systems Using Contracts”. He has an M.S. in Information Engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy (2007), and a B.S. (Laurea) summa cum laude in Electronic Engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy (2003). He received the IBM Ph.D. Fellowships in 2012 and 2014.
Dr. Nuzzo’s interests are in the field of methodologies and tools for the design of cyber-physical systems and embedded systems, including analog-mixed-signal integrated circuits. He has published in major conferences and journals of several communities in electrical engineering (EE) and computer science (CS), including electronic design automation (DAC, ICCAD, DATE, FMCAD), embedded systems (MEMOCODE, SIES, JES) and integrated circuits (JSSC, TCAS, ISSCC, VLSI, RFIC). In total he has published 1 US patent, 1 book chapter, 11 journal papers, and 40 conference papers. He has also received a US patent on A/D converter comprising a voltage comparator device.
Dr. Nuzzo brings new expertise to the department especially in the area of cyber-physical system modeling and optimization, compositional methods in embedded system design, and methodologies and tools for the design of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits
