Domenico Bongiovanni obtained his Bachelor and Master degrees in Electronics Engineering at the University of Palermo (Italy), defending a thesis entitled “Silicon Photomultiplier Circuit Model.” His thesis work was focused on developing an electrical circuit model for a silicon photomultiplier, used in nuclear physics. This work was carried out during an internship of two years at the Sensor Design Group of the STMicroelectronics of Catania. In September 2011, he moved to Canada to do his PhD student at l’Institut National de Recherche Scientifique – Énergie, Matériaux et Télécommunications (INRS-EMT), under the supervision of Prof. R. Morandotti. His PhD research work aimed at investigating the propagation of self-accelerating wave packets into linear and nonlinear media. In 2017, he was a visiting researcher at the Nankai University in China where he carried out experiments in shock waves. Since June 2018, he has enrolled at the INRS as a postdoctoral fellow.
