Giovanna Mura received the PhD. Degree in Electronic Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Cagliari, Italy, in 2004. Since 2012, she is Assistant Professor in the Department of Electric and Electronic Engineering, University of Cagliari. She teaches “Reliability of electronic systems” and “Diagnostic of electronic devices” in the MSc courses on Electronic Engineering.
Her research activity is mainly focused on failure physics, diagnostics of microelectronics, reliability in harsh environments (automotive, space applications..). Her current research interests include the physical detection of counterfeit electronics.
Since 2012, she has been involved in the TPC of several editions of the European Symposium on Reliability of Electron Devices, Failure Physics and Analysis (ESREF). She is author of more than 67 papers published on international journals or presented in international conferences. She is a member of the IEEE Reliability Society.
