Research Scientist, Scientific Project Lead
Zurich Research Laboratory, Zurich, Switzerland



2015 Staff member of the Cognitive System team

2013-2014 Technical Assistant to M. Kaiserswerth, Lab Director and VP, IBM Research-Zurich

Research areas 2002-2014:

Development of gate stacks suited for metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors based on high-mobility channels (III-V compound semiconductors) for high-performance, low-power logic applications.

Integration of functional oxides onto standard silicon electronic and nanophotonic platforms to enable novel analogue and digital applications, which will address the transition from More-Moore to More-than-Moore technology trends.

Design and development of advanced materials characterization techniques, in particular x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) performed with laboratory equipment and synchrotron facilities.

Education: PhD in Materials Science for work on high dielectric constant oxides (high-κ) for Si CMOS technology in 2005. Bachelor's degree in Physical Chemistry and a Master's degree in "Materials for communication and energy storage technologies" from the European School for Advanced Studies at the University of Pavia. She has been a research staff member since 2007.
