The seminar intends to introduce language and stylistic tools t to write accurate texts. In particular, the AEWII will focus on some specific written genres of the academia, i.e. doctoral theses and posters and Phd students will have extensive opportunities to practice both with text analysis and with their production. Special attention will be given to argumentative techniques of posters and oral presentations.

Francesco Maria Puglisi
Associate Professor of Electronics, Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia
My current role: I perform research activity in the field of characterization and modeling of new memories and transistors, with a focus on noise, reliability, and variability. Recently, i am interested in new architectures for non-von Neumann computation. I also perform teaching activity in the fields of nanoelectronics, circuit design and electronic systems.

The expertise and competences acquired during my PhD experience were seminal for my whole carrer. Besides acquiring a significant amount of technical skills in my field of research, during my PhD i learned how to perform and lead complex research activities, how to present innovative results to an audience of professionals, and how to organize the structure of a research project in all its components.
I remember when i found out interesting but peculiar results while performing delicate noise measurements. I had to stay up all night to perform those measurements again, to exclude possible interefernces from the appliances that were typically on during daytime (computers, fans, heating...). Fortunately, results turned out to be the same as those i got in the morning but i remember it as a fun moment (perhaps because, at the end, results confirmed that i was not forced to perform noise measurements at night to get reliable results)!
