Academic discipline: ING-INF/01 Electronic Engineering

Curriculum vitae

- Laurea in Electrical Engineering in 1986 at the University of Bologna;

- Ph.D. in “Electrical engineering and computer science” in 1992 at the University of Bologna;

- Assistant Professor in Electronic Engineering at the University of Bologna from 1994 to 2004;

- Associate professor in Electronic Engineering at the same University since 2005;

- Member of the “Centro di Ricerca sui Sistemi Elettronici per l'Ingegneria dell'Informazione e delle Telecomunicazioni Ercole de Castro” (ARCES) since 2001, when the center was founded following the approval of the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR);

- Currently she is responsible for the University of Bologna of the ERASMUS exchanges with Technishe Universiteit Delft (Netherland), Tampere University (Finland), Institut Polytechnique de Bordeaux (France), and Technishe Universitat Berlin (Germany);

- Board member of the PhD program “Information Technologies” hosted by ARCES and then of the PhD “Electronic, Telecommunications and Information Technologies” hosted by DEI Department at University of Bologna until 2017;

- Currently in charge of a course on Digital Integrated Circuits Design for students in Electronic Engineering Master Degree;

- From 2016 member of the scientific committee of the joint STMicrolectronics-ARCES Lab at the University of Bologna.

E.F.S. research activity was carried out in the frame of circuit design to improve system performance in different application fields; she addressed  non-linear signal pre-processing through analog circuits, architectures and circuits for the front-end of RF transceivers, circuits to allow 3D wireless interconnection for chip-to-chip communication and wireless probing,  design of bio-sensors and of active electrodes for brain imaging and design of soft-core embedded FPGAs. Currently the research activity is devoted to the design  of autonomous sensing and actuating IoT nodes, both at system and circuit level, and of architectures and analog circuit blocks for PCM-based in-memory computing.

All of her research activities were carried out in the framework of national or European projects or in cooperation with STMicrolectronics. Currently, she is responsible of University of Bologna activities in EU projetcs StorAIge (H2020, JTI-ECSEL: Embedded storage elements on next MCU generation ready for AI on the edge) and neuroSoC (Horizon-Europe: A multiprocessor system on chip with in-memory neural processing unit).

She is co-author of 13 patents within the research agreement between University of Bologna and STMicroelectronics.
