Nicolas Locatelli

Nicolas Locatelli received the M.S. degree from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, France, in 2009, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Paris-Sud, Orsay, France, in 2012.

During his PhD at the Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales (Palaiseau, France), he studied the coupling and synchronization phenomenon of spin transfer torque nano-oscillators.

As a Postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, his research work is focused on the development of bio-inspired circuits and systems that can make reliable use of unreliable nanodevices (with high variability, stochastic behaviors, etc.).

He is also interested in the development of highly parallel computing architectures relying on oscillator nanotechnologies.

Nicolas is currently part of the LabEx NanoSacly Postdoctoral Chair for the study of nanodevices reliabilty.

He has coauthored 23 journal articles, 5 conference proceedings, 2 book chapters and a patent. He received the Thales PhD prize in
2013 and the advanced research cluster in Physics “Triangle de la Physique” PhD prize in 2015.
