Two New Recruits

Our two newest recruits are Salvatore Teresi (ESR7, Spintec-CEA) and Mayank Sharma (ESR2, nanoGUNE). Welcome to SPEAR!

Salvatore Teresi obtained his degree in Physical Engineering from the Polictecnico di Torino in Italy and recently completed his Master’s Degree in Nanotechnologies for ICT from the same university, which included an 11-month ERASMUS stay at Grenoble INP-Phelma (France). In September he will join Dr. Laurent Vila’s team at Spintec to work on IRP7, “Spin-charge conversion in topological insulators“.

Mayank Sharma is currently enrolled in the Master of Technology in Functional Materials and Nanotechnology at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras. He was awarded a DAAD scholarship to carry out his master’s project at TU Munich and the Walther Meissner Institute in Garching (Germany), where he is now finishing his investgation on the spin Hall magnetoresistance in different cubic, magnetically ordered iron oxides. In September he will join Dr. Luis Hueso’s team at nanoGUNE to work on IRP2, “2D van der Waals magnetic heterostructures“.

Three more ESRs selected!

Our recruitment process continues, and we can now introduce three more of SPEAR’s ESRs! Meet…

Vishesh Saxena, from India. Vishesh is currently carrying out his Master’s in Nanoscience at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials (University of Groningen), investigating the opto-spintronics and magnonics of 2D materials. After his defense this summer, he will begin working on SPEAR’s IRP11, “Antiferromagnetic Skyrmions in ultrathin films” under the supervision of Dr. Kirsten von Bergmann (Uni Hamburg).

Arturo Rodríguez, from Spain. Arturo is carrying out his Master’s in Condensed Matter Physics and Biological Systems at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in Spain. Like Vishesh, he will graduate this summer and will begin working on SPEAR’s IRP12 “Skyrmions in proximity to a superconductor with large spin-orbit coupling” under the supervision of Dr. Kirsten von Bergmann (Uni Hamburg).

Niklas Kercher, from Germany. Niklas recently finished his Master’s in Materials Science at RWTH Aachen University (Germany), where he studied the the growth of indium antimonide nanowires and their transport porperties. He will soon join Prof. Gambardella’s research group at ETH Zürich to start workin on IRP4, “Investigation of current-induced magnetic and spin-orbit effects in 2D materials”.

Welcome to SPEAR, Vishesh, Arturo and Niklas!
