Elena Blokhina received the Habilitation HDR (equiv. D.Sc.) degree in electronic engineering from UPMC Sorbonne Universities, France, in 2017, the Ph.D. degree in physical and mathematical sciences and the M.Sc degree in physics from Saratov State University, Russia, in 2006 and 2002 respectively. From 2005 to 2007 she was a research scientist at Saratov State University. Since 2007, she has been with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of University College Dublin, Ireland, and is currently a lecturer and the coordinator of the Circuits and Systems Research Group. 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 and track chair at many international conferences on circuits and systems and nonlinear dynamics including as IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS), IEEE Latin American Symposium on Circuits and Systems (LASCAS), IEEE Asia-Pacific Conference on Circuits and Systems (APCCAS), International Symposium on Nonlinear Theory and Its Applications (NOLTA), IEEE international Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems (ICECS) and others. Dr Blokhina has served as the Programme Chair of the first edition of IEEE Next Generation of Circuits and Systems Conference (NGCAS) 2017 and of IEEE ICECS 2018. In 2016-2017 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 at IEEE ISCAS, IEEE ICECS and NOLTA. Dr Blokhina served as a Visiting Professor in UPMC University of Paris 06, Sorbonne Universities in 2014 and 2017. 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
