Role in the networkExperienced Researcher (ER)
Materials Research FocusMaterials drivers for high tech IT, communications and sensor applications
Current Research ActivitiesTheoretical investigation of magnetic and multiferroic materials, in particular the high frequency dynamics of thin films and multilayers.
I am interested in the design of multi-phase materials for technological applications, especially since the presence of interfaces may significantly alter the properties of materials.
