Andrea received his B.Eng. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2016 at the University of Malta, with a particular focus on embedded systems. He furthered his studies with an MSc in Analogue and Digital Integrated Circuit Design at Imperial College London, developing a data and power delivery system for wired implantable devices, as part of his thesis titled “Wired Full-Duplex Communication and Power Delivery for Medical Implantable Systems”. Andrea then joined Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) as a CMOS Sensor Design Engineer within the CMOS Sensor Design group. His work focused on the design and testing of CMOS image sensors including both pixel and periphery circuit design.
As of August 2020, he joined the Next Generation Neural Interfaces (NGNI) lab and the Centre for Bio-Inspired Technology (CBIT) at Imperial College London as a Research Associate and PhD candidate in IC design.
Andrea's current work focuses on mixed-signal systems and circuits, and scalable architectures such as imagers and mass characterisation of devices and technologies (for e.g. ReRAM).
