Piedad Brox born in 1979, holds a Doctor of Science in Microelectronics (with honors) from University of Seville (Spain, 2009). She obtained two post-doctoral fellowships funded by Spanish Government and University of Seville. She belongs to Digital and Mixed Integrated Circuits Design (UDDM) group since 2002, and she became a Tenured Scientist in 2018 at the IMSE (CSIC/University of Seville).
Her experience during these years in the design of digital integrated circuits for different application purposes has been applied in the area of hardware security more recently (last 7 years). Her expertise in this area includes scientific works with PUFs extracted from SRAMs implemented on several CMOS integration technologies (TSMC 90nm, UMC 65 nm), and the VLSI realization of trusted virtual sensors using lightweight authenticated ciphers. She has been PI of two research projects funded by Spanish Government (HW-IDENTIoTY and ID-EO). She has published more than 80 papers, has supervised 3 PhD theses, and has one US patent licensed by a company.
