Engineering Science welcomes new faculty member

September 11, 2013

The School of Engineering Science welcomes new faculty member Fabio Campi this fall semester. Born and raised in Bologna, Italy, Campi received his MSc in Microelectronics (1999) and his PhD in Electronics and Computing Science (2003) from the University of Bologna.

Having done sessional lectures at the University of Bologna, Campi wished to further pursue teaching. His research interests include reconfigurable computing, multi-core and multi-many-core signal processing architectures, and asynchronous on-chip communication. He looks forward to contributing his industry experience to SFU and the computer-engineering curriculum in particular. Campi holds four patents in the field of architecture design and has more than 40 published IEEE Journal and conference papers.

From 1999-2004 Campi worked at the Advanced Research Center on Electronic Systems E. De Castro (ARCES) in Bologna, researching the application of innovative CMOS design platforms to signal processing, as well as different strategies for embedding FPGA fabrics in System-on-Chip design. He spent the following nine years at STMicroelectronics – a French-Italian multinational electronics and semiconductor manufacturer – working on run time reconfigurable processor architectures, networks-on-chip, multi-core and multi-many-core processor architectures, VLSI design, Low power design, Power Analysis/Integrity and EMI Immunity for ICs.

Campi, along with his wife and two daughters, looks forward to settling down in Canada and to his first semester at SFU.
