Biography of Professor Marco Ottavi


    Associate Professor at the University of Twente and the University of Rome Tor Vergata with National Scientific Qualification for Full Professor in Electronic Engineering. Before that, he was a Research Professor at the same university as the recipient of a prestigious “rientro dei cervelli” (Reverse Brain Drain) fellowship awarded by the Italian Ministry of university and Research. Previously he was a Senior Design Engineer at Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and a postdoctoral research associate at Sandia National Laboratories and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Northeastern university in Boston. He received a Ph.D. in Microelectronics and Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and a Laurea degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Rome “La Sapienza.” His research focuses on dependable computing systems based on emerging technologies and architectures. On these topics, he teaches graduate courses and has published over 130 contributions (Scopus: H-index=21) to international conferences and peer-reviewed journals. He serves as a reviewer for many IEEE journals and highly cited conferences; he has been a Guest Editor of two Special Issues of IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology and an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing. He also serves as an organizer, member of the technical program committee, and reviewer of several IEEE journals and conferences. From 2011 to 2015, he was the chair of the European project COST MEDIAN (Manufacturable and Dependable Multicore Architectures at Nanoscale). In 2012 he was part of the funded UK- EPSRC Grant *Yield and reliability enhancement techniques for novel memory devices focusing on novel memristor-based architectures.* he has been the co-PI of the Leverhulme Trust (UK) grant *“MONITOR: A Self-Repairable Memristive Gas Sensor Array*.” He is a senior member of IEEE and a member of the HiPEAC Network of Excellence.
