Osamah Alharbi


PhD student


Building 3 - Desk 2260-WS05

Research Interests

Osamah’s research focuses on investigating the resistive switching phenomenon in different materials, the design and fabrication of memristors and memeristive crossbar arrays based on the Metal-Insulator-Metal (MIM) architecture with industry-compatible techniques. Also, he studies the applicability and use of building memristive artificial neural networks (ANNs).
