Vito is the Director of the, Quantum NanoFabs facility. In June 2008, he joined the University of Waterloo to participate in the implementation of the university’s Mike & Ophelia Lazaridis Quantum-Nano Centre (Lazaridis Centre). In 2014, fab operations were relocated to the Lazaridis Centre from the temporary facility in the university's RAC1 building. The RAC1 facility was commissioned in 2009 to permit key research activities to move forward during the new building's construction phase.
Vito received his Bachelors of Engineering and Masters of Applied Science degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Concordia University in Montreal. As an NSERC postgraduate scholar at Concordia, he conducted semiconductor research in the Microelectronics Device and Fabrication Laboratory under the direction of Professor Les Landsberger. He is a past member of the Order of Engineers of Quebec and a current member of Professional Engineers Ontario.
He worked several years in industry for companies including CAE Electronics, Nortel Networks and Mitel Semiconductor (currently Teledyne-DALSA) holding various positions in process engineering, quality assurance, operations and program management.
In 2001, Vito joined McGill University to participate in the design, construction and implementation of McGill’s Nanotools for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology fabrication facility. He managed this lab from its inauguration in 2003 until May 2008.
