New Research interests
Unconventional computing for the solution of complex optimization problems. I’m focusing on stochastic computing, memcomputing and reservoir computing paradigms and how those can be implemented in spintronic technology. In collaboration with Prof. Zhongming Zeng actually we are working on the development of spintronic devices for emulating synapses and neurons.
