Diana Dávila received her B.Sc. in Electronic Engineering from the Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico in 2004 and her M.S. in Micro and Nanoelectronic Engineering in 2008 and Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering in 2011 from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain. She has conducted research on fuel cells, nanomaterials, thermoelectricity, spintronics and MEMS devices, all this in multidisciplinary environments such as the Microelectronics Institute of Barcelona (IMB-CNM, CSIC), the Catalonia Institute for Energy Research (IREC), the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL) and ETH Zurich.
In 2016, she joined the IBM Research - Zurich Laboratory as Senior Engineer to form part of the Operations Team of the cleanroom of the Binnig and Rohrer Nanochtenology Center (BRNC). Her areas of expertise are CVD deposition, DWL lithography, carbon-based processes, structural and chemical characterization of materials, annealing processes, dry etching, among others.
Her current research interests focus on the development and integration of nanostructured materials and the characterization of material properties at the nanoscale.
She collaborates with the Neuromorphic devices & systems group and with the Quantum technology group.
