Antonio Martinez received a M.Sc. degree in physics from the University of Havana, Cuba in 1987 and then worked in a naval research centre developing finite element software (1987-1994). He got a M.Sc. degree in physics from the University of Umea, Umea, Sweden in 1997, and a Ph.D. degree from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden in 2003. His Ph.D. thesis deals with carrier transport and band to band tunnelling in anisotropic materials (SiC,GaN) at high electric field using ensemble Monte Carlo. He was a research assistant (2004-2011) in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering, University of Glasgow, U.K. In 2011 he was awarded an EPSRC career acceleration fellowship to simulate quantum transport in solid state transistors. He is currently associate professor at Swansea university, Wales, UK. His experience includes the development of (i) Monte Carlo simulation software for electron/hole transport and (ii) a device simulator using a nonequilibrium Green’s functions formalism for nanotransistors. In addition, he developed software for electrothermal simulations and local power dissipation in narrow Si and III-V nanoscale transistors. He has more than 100 research peer reviewed contributions, including several invited papers and 2 book chapters.
