Dr. Denis Dondi graduated on 2005 at the Universita degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emilia with a thesis entitled “Analysis and Design of a CMOS Doherty Power Amplifier for wireless communications at 1.8 GHz”. He received his Ph.D. degree on 2009 at the International Doctorate School in Information and Communication Technologies at the Universita degli Studi di Modena e Reggio Emiliawith a thesis entitled “Energy Harvesting Systems for Wireless Sensor Network Devices”.

His research activities include development of WSNs for industrial applications and analysis and implementation of Energy Harvesting systems from renewable energy sources for autonomous sensors and WSN’s devices. In particular, his project, under development at the University of California San Diego, refers to the design and implementation of an Embedded Wireless system for Structural Health Monitoring, called SHiMmer. About Energy Harvester research activity, his contribution concerns analysis, modelling, design and characterization of high efficiency harvesting circuits from renewable energy sources, e.g. photovoltaic panels, piezoelectric transducers and RF signals.
