Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellow

Research interests

  • Dr Firman is exploiting the emerging memristive system for ultra-high dense data storage, AI-hardware accelerator, and sensor applications, where these multifunctional capabilities can exist in single architectonic enabling reconfigurable and adaptive electronic system. He is also interested in integrating our memristive devices with different electronics (RF, LED, waveguide, etc.) to open a new way of controlling the electrical/material properties of the integrated devices.

Dr. Firman is a scientist at the School of Electronics & Computer Science, University of Southampton (UoS - UK). He received full scholarships for his M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. in Materials Science & Engineering from Taiwan top universities. He has been recently granted the prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Fellowship to run MENESIS project (Memristor-Enabled NEuromorphic System for Intelligence in Space) delivering cloud servers technology in the sky (satellites, space stations, interplanetary probes, etc). He is an expert in the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured materials, and his research interests are memristive and sensor technologies, as well as materials processing and analysis for advanced electronics. Prior to joining the UoS, he was with World Premier  – Advanced Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University - Japan, where he pioneered the neutral ions irradiations technique to control the synaptic behaviour of memristor devices. He has published more than seventy peer-reviewed research articles and conference papers within the last seven years.  Currently, his work focuses on AI-hardware accelerators for space and nuclear applications.
