Dr Michele Caselle (PI, male) obtained his Master Degree in electronic engineer (specialization in microelectronics) at the Polytechnic of Bari in 1999 followed by PhD in microelectronics at the Polytechnic of Bari. He has got a Post-Doctoral position followed by Researcher at the Physics Department University and INFN of Bari (2000- 2008). In the first part of his career, he worked at INFN and CERN in the design, construction and commissioning of the ALICE pixel detector at LHC (CERN). From 2008 to 2011 he has got a researcher position in the microelectronics group at CERN where he started the development of a novel generation of monolithic pixel detector for High Luminosity-LHC detectors. In 2011, he has got a permanent scientific position at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). At KIT he led a research group for the design and production of several cutting-edge silicon detectors for large physics experiments at CERN and GSI. In 2016 was successfully completed the production of the CMS pixel detector for the Phase 1 (upgrade) and he was principal investigator of novel bump-bonding technologies for both the outer tracker and timing layer detectors of CMS Phase 2 (Upgrade) and of the production of the microstrip silicon tracking system of CBM (Compressed Baryonic Matter) experiment at FAIR (GSI). At KIT he has developed and produced several beam diagnostic detector systems for both synchrotron and free electron laser accelerator machines. He is responsible of the design and commissioning of several data acquisition systems for next generation of photon science experiments, superconductive sensors and quantum bit technologies, high energy physics experiment at CERN and GSI and hardware platform for artificial intelligence algorisms. Currently, he is coordinating, at national level, the program subtopic “Detection and Measurement” and “Beam Physics instrumentation” within DTS of the Helmholtz Association.
