Elena Ferraro (1983) obtained her PhD in Physics with a thesis titled “Spin systems in fermionic and bosonic environment” from University of Palermo in 2010, where she also received the Laurea degree in Theoretical Physics in 2006. During her PhD she spents several months at the University “Albert Ludwigs” of Freiburg in Germany in the group of Prof. Heinz-Peter Breuer working on a research activity about open quantum system, acquiring competences on Markovian and non-Markovian master equation techniques. She has attended international Schools of Physics in the field of quantum information and quantum simulations and she has involved in several national and international scientific projects. She obtained in 2010 a two years Post-Doc at the University of Roma Tor Vergata following a research on ab-initio calculations of optical properties of silicon surfaces and nanostructures. She joined the MDM Laboratory in march 2012 as a temporary research scientist of CNR in the field of quantum computation with silicon devices and constructions of simple quantum logical gates. She obtained a Post-Doc from november 2014 to march 2016 at INRiM Torino (Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica) following a research activity on non-equilibrium thermodynamics processes, magnetic vortex dynamics and spin Seebeck and spin Peltier effects analysis in magnetic junctions. She joined again the MDM Laboratory in april 2016 as a Post-Doc in the field of quantum computation in the framework of the european project MOS-QUITO (MOS-based Quantum Information Technology) . She is referee of international journals and has presented contributed talks in several international conferences.
