IBM Research Europe - Zurich Zurich, Switzerland


Tommaso joined IBM Research Europe - Zurich in 2020 as a Ph.D. candidate in the Neuromorphic devices and Systems group. From 2020 to 2023, he was involved in the H2020 project MANIC, whose aim is the synthesis of materials and electronic devices functioning as artificial synapses and neurons. From 2023 on, he is contributing to the SNF project ALMOND, whose goal is the development of neuromorphic processors, electronic computing systems inspired by the biological functionalities of neurons. Specifically, his research focuses on the fabrication and characterization of micro- and nano-scale devices, exhibiting fast and non-volatile resistive switching properties. By arranging such memory devices in the crossbar array architecture, it is possible to execute artificial intelligence workloads more efficiently than in conventional electronic systems based on digital processors.

Tommaso holds a dual M.Sc. in Electronics Engineering and Applied Physics from the universities Politecnico di Milano and Ecole Centrale Paris. He conducted his Master's thesis at Politecnico di Milano under the supervision of professor D. Ielmini on the development of volatile and non-volatile filamentary resistive switching devices for neuromorphic computing.
