Erika Covi

Combine memristive devices and CMOS technology to reproduce computational primitives of the brain in mixed neuromorphic-memristive hardware.

Short Biography

Erika Covi is a Scientist at NaMLab gGmbH, Dresden (Germany). She received her PhD in Microelectronics in 2014 from the University of Pavia (Italy), where she worked on designing integrated systems for the characterisation of memristive devices. Before joining NaMLab, she worked at the National Research Council (CNR) of Italy first, then at Politecnico di Milano (Italy).

She won an ERC Starting Grant on memristive neurons and synapses for neuromorphic edge computing in 2021.

She is Senior Member IEEE and member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Circuits And Systems Society for the period 2022 – 2024.

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.
