Carlos Sampedro is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Granada (UGR). He received the M.Eng. in Electronics Engineering and M.Sc. in Physics from UGR in 2001, and the PhD degree from UGR in 2006 on the study, characterization and simulation of velocity modulation transistors on silicon. He received the 2006 PhD Excellence award for his dissertation. In 2001, he joined the University of Applied Sciences in Pforzheim, Germany as Project Engineer returning in 2003 to the UGR as PhD in the frame of the FP5 project EXTRA. In 2004, he became Assistant Professor with the UGR. He was Guest Research in the Device Modelling group of the University of Glasgow (U.K.) in 2005 and in the University of Santiago de Compostela. Since 2011 he is an Associate Professor with the UGR and a member of the Nanoelectronics Research Group.
is working on advanced simulation techniques and modelling of electron transport in semiconductor devices. In particular, his research interest includes the study of ultimate scaled multigate, advanced SOI, non-conventional devices and capacitor-less memory cells for IoT applications, and the development of Multi-Subband Ensemble Monte Carlo tools. He is also leading the structural characterization setups in the UGR-NanoLab devoted to Graphene and other 2D materials. More recently, he is also involved in the design of UWB radar portable systems for presence detection and biosignal monitoring. He has co-authored more than 100 papers published in major journals and conference proceedings and participated in 7 European projects corresponding to FP5, FP6, FP7
He teaches Digital Electronics at the undergraduate level and Emerging Technologies for Nanoelectronic Devices in the Master Degree in Telecommunication Engineering and in the Master of Electronic Engineering.
He has supervised two PhD students. He has been a member of the Organizing Committee of several international conferences and is a censor of top journals included in the JCR.
