Marco A. Villena holds a PhD (with honors) in Physics and Space Science at the University of Granada, Spain, in 2015. His thesis focused on the modeling and development of a novel simulation tools for RRAM (Resistive Random Access Memories) devices called SIM2RRAM. Now, he is physicist/scientist at Applied Materials in Reggio Emilia, Italy. Previously, he was Postdoctoral researcher in the Soochow University, Suzhou, China and postdoctoral fellow in Stanford University, California, USA. His research interests focus on development of new physical model and simulation tools for RRAM devices based on 2D materials. In addition, he has designed new methods of automatic analysis for the experimental measurements of these devices. He is an expert user of the MATLAB software and other programming languages.
