      Elena Gnani received the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering "summa cum laude" and the Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2003 with a dissertation entitled "Physical models for MOS nanostructures", both from the University of Bologna. In 2014 she became Associate Professor at the University of Bologna where she is involved in research activities concerning the development of physical transport models in semiconductor devices and numerical-analysis techniques, with special emphasis on the study of quantum-confined devices, such as FinFETs, silicon nanowires (NW), steep-slope devices representing possible candidates for future generations of the nanoelectronic technology, quasi ballistic transport in nanoMOSFETs, as well as carrier injection in non-volatile memory cells. She has been involved in several National and European Projects. Her research activities have been carried out in cooperation with worldwide semiconductor research centers and semiconductor industries.
      E. Gnani is author or co-author of more than 180 papers published in referred international journals and in proceedings of major international conferences, and of several invited contributions. She has been a member of the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) from 2001, and is presently an IEEE Senior Member and EDS Distinguished Lecturer for Region8. She is also a member of the EDS Technology Computer Aided Design Committee.
