Elena Blokhina

Funded Investigator


Elena Blokhina is a Funded Investigator at CONNECT in University of Dublin where she is a scientific coordinator of the Circuits and Systems Research Group.

Elena Blokhina received the Habilitation (equiv. DSc) degree in engineering from UPMC Sorbonne Universities, France, in 2017, the PhD degree in physical and mathematical sciences and the M.Sc degree in physics from Saratov State University, Russia, in 2006 and 2002 respectively. Since 2007, she has been with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of University College Dublin, Ireland.

Dr Blokhina is a Senior member of IEEE and the Chair Elect of the IEEE Technical Committee on Nonlinear Circuits and Systems. She had been elected to serve as a member of the Boards of Governors of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CAS) for the term 2013-2015 and has been re-elected for the term 2015-2017. From 2014 to 2017, she chaired the IEEE CAS Young Professionals and Women in Circuits and Systems committee. She has served as a member of organising committees, review and programme committee, session chair, track chair and programme chair for many international conferences on electronics, including the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society’s major conferences – the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS) and IEEE International Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems (ICECS). In 2016-201, Dr Blokhina was an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I, and since 2018 she is the Deputy Editor in Chief of that Journal. Dr Blokhina has co-organised and presented a number of special sessions and tutorials on nonlinear energy harvesters, the complexity of systems-on-a-chip and the nonlinear dynamics of micro-scale systems.

Her research interests include the analysis, design, modelling and simulations of nonlinear circuits, systems and networks with particular application to complex, emerging and mixed-domain systems in microelectronics.
