Structural and electrical characterization of materials for advanced data storage, resistive switching memories and phase change materials. Solid state phase transitions, induced by laser, electric pulses or ion beam irradiation. Development of photoelectrodes for water splitting using solar energy

Curriculum: 

She received the B.S. degree (cum laude) in 1998 and the Ph.D. degree in Physics from the University of Catania, Italy, 2002. From 2002 to 2004 she was Post Doc at the University of Catania, working on phase change materials for non-volatile memories. In 2004 she joined STMicroelectronics, Catania, at the R&D Department working on design and integration of electronic devices. Since December 2011 she is a Staff Research Scientist at IMM-CNR, Catania.

Her research interests are in the field of the development of semiconductor devices and of electrical and structural characterization of electronic materials, with focus on phase change materials and on novel photoelectrodes for solar fuel production. She is author of 6 US issued patents, and 6 US patent applications, 54 scientific and technical papers published in international refereed journals, more than 40 technical reports, and she has contributed to 2 book chapters. She has presented oral and poster contributions at numerous international conferences/workshops, with 2 invited presentation.

Chair of the symposium on Phase Change Materials at the 2017 MRS Spring Meeting, Phoenix and at the 2018 MRS Spring Meeting.

Collaborations with several research insitutes, including Paul Drude Institute, Berlin for the characterization of epitaxial layers of Phase change materials based on GeSbTe alloys; RWTH Aachen for the characterization of phase change materials transformations under ion irradiation; SEMATECH, Austin, US, for the characterization of resistive switching memories; Soochow University, China, for the development of photoelectrodes for water splitting using solar energy.
