He is Associate Professor of Electronics at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia since 2018. He was a visiting Ph.D. student at SEMATECH, U.S.A., in 2013 and received his Ph.D. degree in 2015 with full marks. He is the recipient of three Best Paper Awards at prestigious international conferences (IEEE ICICDT 2013, IEEE ESSDERC 2016, and IEEE ESSDERC 2019) for his contributions on Resistive Memories compact modeling and Random Telegraph Noise in FinFETs. He also received a number of national recognitions for his student record and scientific contributions.
His research interests are in the characterization and physics-based/compact modeling of Resistive Memories for non-volatile memory, neuromorphic, and security applications. He focuses on novel characterization techniques, particularly noise analysis, and reliability of advanced devices like Resistive Memories, FinFETs, novel MOSFETs architectures. He is also interested in 2D materials for logic and memory applications, memory-in-logic devices and circuits for novel non-Von-Neumann computation schemes, and in the characterization and modeling/simulation of novel III-V devices for power and logic applications, and in advanced heterostructure bipolar transistors for high-speed communications.
