Position: Research Scientist

After my bachelor studies in Barcelona (Spain) and my master degree in Orsay (France), I worked in the group of Prof. Ansermet at EPFL, Lausanne to prepare my PhD. The subject of my thesis “Spin-depependent thermoelectric effects in magnetic nanostructures” contributed actively to the beginning of a new field in spintronics, the so-called spin-caloritronics. This work was focused on exploring spin-dependent transport phenomena of magnetic nano¬structures under an oscillating temperature or temperature gradient. This technique enabled the exploration of new effects resulting from the interplay of heat, charge and spin currents that cannot be detected previously. Recently, this new field triggered a lot of attention due to the possibility to generate pure spin currents (Spin Seebeck Effect) or even to induce heat assisted magnetization reversal (Thermal Spin Transfer Torque magnetization reversal). After my PhD I moved to the group of Dr. Hans Werner Schumacher at the Physikalisch-Technischen Bundesanstalt (PTB - German Metrology Institute) at Braunschweig (Germany). There, I have been working on ultra fast precessional magnetization dynamics, spin transfer torque (STT) dynamics and metrology standards for inductive magnetization dynamics in magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) stacks and ferromagnetic thin films. Other research activities that I am working on include spin caloritronic effects in magneti tunnel junctions.
