The 6th International Conference on Memristive Materials, Devices & Systems (MEMRISYS 2023) took place at the Politecnico di Torino (Italy) from 5 – 9 November 2023. Nanoscale Horizons was delighted to provide a prize for the best oral presentation at the conference. Please join us in congratulating our winner, Caterina Sbandati, for being the recipient of this award!
Caterina Sbandati completed her BSc and MSc in Electronics Engineering at the University of Florence in 2017 and Politecnico of Milan in 2020 respectively. In 2021, she earned an MSc in Machine Intelligence from the University of Southampton. Caterina is currently in her final year as a PhD candidate at the University of Edinburgh’s School of Engineering. She is investigating real-time brain activity processing using memristive devices, under the supervision of Professor Themis Prodromakis, Regius Chair of Engineering and director of Centre for Electronics Frontiers (CEF).
As a member of CEF, she coordinates with partners at Padova and Bar-Ilan Universities, actively participating in joint in-vivo experiments bridging biology and electronics. Additionally, Caterina collaborates with the European Commission Joint Research Centre, actively contributing to the Observatory for Critical Technologies. This collaborative effort is focused on shaping new policies for EU strategic autonomy, particularly in the area of semiconductors and artificial intelligence.
Caterina was awarded the Nanoscale Horizons prize for her presentation entitled, ‘RRAM-based processing of Local Field Potentials’
