Rocío del Río received the degrees of Licenciada (M.Sc.) and Doctora (Ph.D.) in Physics, in the specialty of Electronics, both from the University of Seville, Spain, in 1996 and 2004, respectively. In 1995 she joined the Institute of Microelectronics of Seville (IMSE-CNM, CSIC-Universidad de Sevilla), where she works in the group of “Analog and Mixed-Signal Microelectronics”.

In 1995 she also joined the Department of Electronics and Electromagnetism of the University of Seville, where she is currently an Associate Professor. She has taught, among other courses, “Circuit Theory”, “Basic Electronics” and “Numerical and Simulation Methods” for the graduate program in Physics, “Simulation of Electronic Circuits” for the degree in Computer Science Engineering, and “RF Front-end Circuit Design” for the Master Degree in Microelectronics. She has been awarded with three diplomas of Teaching Excellence by the University of Seville. She has coordinated the Master Degree in Microelectronics of the University of Seville from 2016 to 2020.

Her main research interests are in the field mixed-signal circuits (with special emphasis in switched- capacitor circuit techniques) and analog-to-digital converters, including analysis, behavioral modeling, and design automation (specially, of sigma-delta ADCs). She has participated in diverse National and International R&D projects and has co-authored more than 100 international publications, including journal and conference papers, books chapters, and the books CMOS Cascade Sigma-Delta Modulators for Sensor and Telecom: Error Analysis and Practical Design (Springer, 2006), Nanometer CMOS Sigma-Delta Modulators for Software Defined Radio (Springer, 2011), and CMOS Sigma-Delta Converters: Practical Design Guide (Wiley-IEEE Press, 2013).

She was co-recipient of the “Golden Leaf Award” at the 2014 Conference on Ph.D. Research in Microelectronics and Electronics (PRIME) and of the “Best Paper Award” at the 2014 IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging Conference on Image Sensor.

Dr. del Río is a Senior Member of the IEEE and belongs the Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS), the Circuits and Systems Society (CASS), and the Internet of Things Community. She has participated in the organizing committees of the 2007 European Conference on Circuit Theory and Design (ECCTD), of the 2010 European Solid-State Circuits Conference (ESSCIRC), of the 2012 International Conference on Electronics, Circuits, and Systems (ICECS), and of the 2020 International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS). She has served as an Associate Editor of the International Journal Circuit Theory and Application (IJCTA, Wiley) from 2018 to 2020.
