Director of Research
French National Council of Scientific Research

Aida Todri-Sanial received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Bradley University, IL in 2001, M.S. degree in electrical engineering from Long Beach State University, CA, in 2003 and a Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara, in 2009. She received her French Habilitation (Habilitation a Diriger des Recherches) from the University of Montpellier in 2015. She obtained a post-graduate certificate in Entrepreneurship Programme for Women in Science, Technology and Engineering from the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge, UK in 2017.

Dr. Todri-Sanial is currently a Director of Research at the French National Council of Scientific Research (CNRS) attached to Laboratoire d’Informatique de Robotique et de Microélectronique de Montpellier (LIRMM). Previously, she was an R&D Engineer for Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, IL, USA. She has also held research positions at the Mentor Graphics Coorporation, Cadence Design Systems, STMicroelectronics and IBM TJ Watson Research Center.

Her research interests focus on nanometer-scale issues in high-performance VLSI design with emphasis on energy efficiency, power, thermal, signal integrity, and reliability issues as well as on circuits and systems for emerging technologies and nanomaterials. Currently, her research is focused on exploring 1D/2D nanomaterials for nanoelectronics devices and novel computing paradigms such as neuromorphic computing and quantum computing. Dr. Aida Todri-Sanial is the project coordinator of EU H2020 NeurONN 2020-2022 and workpackage leader for EU H2020 SmartVista 2019-2021 and EU H2020 CONNECT 2016-2018 projects, and chief scientist of the University of Montpellier Quantum Computing Hub supported by IBM Quantum Network and the Region of Occitanie, FR. She has co-authored more than 100 publications on VLSI design area and emerging technologies.
