Dr. Esteban Garzón received the BSc Degree (cum laude) in electronics engineering from the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) in Ecuador in 2016. He received a dual MSc degree (GPA: 4.0/4.0) in nanoelectronics and electronics from USFQ and University of Calabria (UNICAL) in Italy in 2018, and his PhD degree in electronics engineering from UNICAL in 2022. Dr. Garzón was awarded a highly competitive research fellowship funded by the Italian Ministry for Universities and Research (MUR) under the call “Horizon Europe 2021-2027 Programme”. He was a visiting PhD student and a visiting researcher at the Emerging Nanoscaled Integrated Circuits and Systems (EnICS) laboratories at Bar-Ilan University in Israel in 2019-2020 and from July through September 2022 respectively. Dr. Garzón is currently a research fellow with the Department of Computer Engineering, Modeling, Electronics, and Systems Engineering (DIMES) at UNICAL. His postdoctoral research will take place at the EnICS laboratories at Bar-Ilan University, Israel, hosted by Prof. Adam Teman.
Dr. Garzón was an IEEE graduate student member since 2016 and became an IEEE member in 2022. He has authored and co-authored more than 35 scientific papers in international peer-reviewed journals and conferences and has participated in several IC tapeouts. His research interests include domain-specific hardware accelerators, electronics/spintronics, cryogenic memories, and standard and emerging technologies for logic, memory, and low-power applications. Dr. Garzón has received several awards, research grants and funding. He has been part of various IEEE conference committees, journal boards (review editor of Frontiers in Electronics and Frontiers in Aerospace Engineering), and has been an active reviewer of several journals (IEEE and Elsevier) and conferences (IEEE).
