Erika Covi (SM’19) received her PhD in Microelectronics in 2014 from the University of Pavia (Italy). She worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the National Research Council (CNR) of Italy first, then at Politecnico di Milano (Italy). She is currently a Scientist at NaMLab gGmbH, Dresden (Germany). She won an ERC Starting Grant 2021 on memristive neurons and synapses for neuromorphic edge computing.
Her research interests lie at the intersection of emerging devices, circuit design, and brain-inspired computing. More specifically, they focus on exploiting the intrinsic physical characteristics of memristive devices to reproduce computational primitives of the brain in mixed neuromorphic-memristive systems.
