Last two ESRs selected!

Our ESR selection process has now come to an end! Our two remaining researchers, ESRs 13 and 14, have now been selected. Meet…

Zhewen Xu, from China. Zhewen obtained his bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering at Tongji University and recently completed his Master’s degree in Material Science at RWTH Aachen, Germany. He is set to join QZabre in Zurich (Switzerland) this October, where he will begin working on this research project (IRP13) is “Skyrmions: Imaging and Characterization at Ambient Conditions via Scanning NV Magnetometry” under the supervision of Dr Gabriel Puebla-Hellmann.

Kuldeep Ray, comes from India. After a Bachelor’s in Technology in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, Kuldeep began his Erasmus Mundus Master in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at KU Leuven and TU Dresden, which he expects to complete in October. In November he will join ANTAIOS, where he will embark on his PhD thesis on IRP14, “Low current SOT-MRAM for integration in functional devices“, under the supervision of Dr. Marc Drouard.

Meet ESRs 9 and 10!

Our two latest recruits, Sergio Leiva and Ismael Ribeiro, are our first from across the Atlantic! They will join Prof. Ingrid Mertig’s team at Martin Luther Universität Halle-Wittenberg.

Sergio Leiva is from Chile. After a Bachelor’s in Physics, Sergio completed his Master’s thesis, Spin Dynamics mediated by non-equilibrium electrons, from Universidad de Chile. In October he will embark on his PhD thesis on IRP9, Search for efficient spin-to-charge conversion based on the Edelstein effect, under the supervision of Prof. Ingrid Mertig.

Ismael Ribeiro, from Brazil, has a B.Sc. Physics from Federal University of Goiás and a M.Sc. in Physics (From the Keldysh formalism to spin drift and diffusion equation) from the Federal University of Uberlândia. Like Sergio, he will join the SPEAR network in October. His chosen topic is IRP10, Optimization of the skyrmion motion for racetrack applications, which will be supervised by Prof. Ingrid Mertig.

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“.
