Dr., Research Scientist CNRS

My research activity is oriented toward the development of memory devices for innovative computing solutions. Based on my experience in organic materials and solid state physics, I developed different technologies of memristive devices for neuromorphic utilization. We are covering devices fabrication, characterization of the physical properties and performances, small scale circuits for proof of concept demonstration.
