Full Professor at Department of Electrical Engineering

Marcelo Antonio Pavanello is Full Professor at the Electrical Engineering Department of Centro Universitario FEI. He is author or co-author of more than 400 technical papers in peer-reviewed journals and conferences, and author/editor of 6 books. Dr. Pavanello coordinates several research projects fomented by Brazilian agencies like FAPESP, CNPq and Capes. He also supervised several PhD dissertations, MSc thesis and undergraduate projects in Electrical Engineering.

His current research interests are the compact modeling, fabrication, electrical characterization and TCAD simulation of SOI CMOS transistors with multiple gate configurations and silicon nanowires; the wide temperature range of operation of semiconductor devices; the digital and analog operation of novel channel-engineered SOI devices and circuits.

Dr. Pavanello is Senior Member of the IEEE and Member of Brazilian Microelectronics Society. He is also Researcher Associated to the National Council for Scientific Development (CNPq), Brazil. Since 2007 he serves as IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) Distinguished Lecturer. Between 2018 and 2021 he served at the Compact Modeling Technical Committee (CMTC) of EDS. In 2019 he has been assigned as Editor for Process and Device Modeling of IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices journal. In 2020 he has been assigned as Editor of the IEEE Access journal.

Marcelo Antonio Pavanello degree from FEI University in 1993, receiving the award “Instituto de Engenharia” given for the best student among all the modalities of engineering programs offered at FEI. He received the M. Sc. and Ph. D. degrees in 1996 and 2000, respectively, in Electrical Engineering (Microelectronics) from University of São Paulo, Brazil. From August to December 1998 he was with Laboratoire de Microélectronique from Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL), Belgium, working in the fabrication and electrical characterization of novel channel-engineered Silicon-On-Insulator (SOI) transistors. From 2000 to 2002 he was with the Center of Semiconductor Components and Nanotechnologies, State University of Campinas, Brazil, where he worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the development of a CMOS n-well process. Since 2003 he joined the Electrical Engineering Department of Centro Universitario FEI. In 2008 he has been with UCL as a visiting professor. Between 2010 and 2020 he also served as Vice-Rector for Teaching and Research at FEI.
