Elisa is a senior scientist at CEA-Leti. She joined the institute in 2011 after spending one year on the research staff at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento. Her current research interests concern the development of new technologies for bio-inspired neuromorphic computing, with special focus on resistive switching memory devices. She has authored or co-authored 4 book chapters and more than 100 technical papers.
She is coordinator of the "MeM-Scales" (2020-2022) European project (H2020) focused on the codevelopment of a novel class of algorithms, devices and circuits that reproduce multi-timescale processing of biological neural systems. In 2022 she won an ERC Consolidator Grant on "Heterogeneous integration of imprecise memory devices to enable learning from a very small volume of noisy data".
She is member of the editorial board of the Neuromorphic Computing and Engineering IOP Science journal (2019-now); associate editor of the Special issue on Emerging Materials in Neuromorphic Computing, AIP APL Material (2020); associate editor of the IEEE Trans. on Circuits and Systems –II (2020-2021).
She received the PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Università degli Studi di Udine (Italy) and the Grenoble Institute of Technology (INPG, France) in 2010.
