Elisabeth Boco

PhD Researcher

Elisabetta Boco is a PhD researcher at the Stokes Institute, University of Limerick. In 2012 she received a Bachelors Degree in Physics in Perugia with a thesis on simulating a physical system exploiting stochastic resonance for energy harvesting. In 2014 she was awarded a Masters Degree in Physics from Perugia having worked on simulations and the testing of a nonlinear piezoelectric cantilever for energy harvesting exploiting stochastic resonance for weak periodic signals amplification.
During her training as a doctoral student in the department she carried out an internship in Nokia Bell Labs Ireland, which led to the publication of a paper in Applied Physics Letters.

She has participated in several conferences on Energy Harvesting and Smart Cities – SMASIS 2015, SmartGreens 2015 (where she won the best paper award), MDA2016, Energy Harvesting and Storage 2016.

For her doctoral thesis she is working on power output and geometrical parameters optimization of non-linear systems for electromagnetic energy harvesting.
