Lorenzo De Marinis received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electronic engineering from the University of Pisa, in 2017 and 2019, respectively. He received the Ph.D. in 2022 from Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (SSSA), Pisa, Italy. From November 2021 to April 2022, he was a visiting scholar at the WinPhos laboratory, within the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece. He was a research fellow in quantum and neuromorphic photonics from September 2022 to February 2023 at SSSA, where he is currently an Assistant Professor. His main research concerns the conceptualization and design of photonic integrated circuits for quantum and neuromorphic applications, analog computing, photonic-electronic codesign and machine learning for networking scenarios.
