Dr. Milena Cervo Sulzbach has recently joined the ORIGENAL project as a post-doctoral researcher.
Milena obtained her Bachelor’s Diploma in Physics in 2014 at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) in Porto Alegre, Brazil. During her undergraduate studies, she has been granted an internship in the Magnetism Laboratory for 3.5 years, to participate in projects on magnetic spin-valve memory devices.
In 2017, Milena concluded her Master’s Degree in Physics at the same university. In her Master’s thesis, she fabricated and characterized the structure and electrical properties of TiO2 resistive-memory devices, using mainly, ion-beam analysis techniques to understand the oxygen and metal diffusion as a mechanism for resistive switching in ReRAM devices.
In the same year, she won an INPhINIT fellowship to pursue her Ph.D. in Physics at the Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB – CSIC), where she graduated in May 2021 with a thesis on ferroelectric- and resistive-switching phenomena on Hf0.5Zr0.5O2 ferroelectric tunnel junctions.
Milena has now joined the ORIGENAL team at the University of Wuppertal, where she will contribute to the electrical characterization and optimization of neuromorphic devices. “We are extremely happy to have won such a strong and motivated team member as Milena”, says the project coordinator Prof. Daniel Neumeier. “I’m looking forward to start working together!”
