 Nadine Sarah Dersch received her Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Science degrees from the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen (University of Applied Sciences) Campus Gießen in October 2021 and March 2023. From June 2022, she began her work in the research group for nanoelectronics/device modelling and initially dealt with the compact modelling of amorphous oxide semiconductor thin-film transistors (AOS-TFT). Subsequently, the topic of efficient circuit simulation of a memristive crossbar array with synaptic weight variability was dealt with for the Master's thesis. The focus was on the consideration of resistive random access memory (RRAM).

Since April 2023, she is a research associate at THM and is aiming towards her Ph.D. in cooperation with the Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona, Spain. Her work focuses on the development of physics-based modelling approaches for memristors, taking into account the stochastic switching behaviour. In addition, their implementation in hardware-based artificial neural networks.
