Prof. M. Chshiev is a theoretical physicist specializing on theory of spintronic phenomena in magnetic nanostructures and electronic structure of materials for spintronics. His background comprises methods in condensed matter theory and computational material science including ab-initio, tight binding, free electron and diffusive approaches. He received his Ph.D. degree from Moscow Lomonosov State University (Russia) in 1997 and his Habilitation Degree from University Joseph Fourier (France) in 2008. After several postdoctoral stays in France and USA between 1998 and 2004, he joined the Center for Materials for Information Technology at the University of Alabama where he stayed as a research scientist until his arrival to Grenoble (France) in 2008 where he joined Spintec Laboratory holding one of the Chairs of Excellence supported by the Nanosciences Foundation. He was an invited researcher at Univ. of Lorraine and CNRS/Thales (France) as well as adjunct associate professor at University of Alabama (USA). He is Head of Theory and Modeling Group at SPINTEC and carries out research using advanced theoretical approaches in order to understand fundamental physical mechanisms required for the developments of future spintronic devices. His works are published in leading scientific journals (Rev. Mod. Phys., Nature Nanotechnol., Nature Phys., Nano Lett., Adv. Mater., Phys. Rev. Lett. etc.) and he delivered numerous invited talks including at INTERMAG (2008 and 2014), MMM (2016), APS March Meetings (2009 and 2013) and Gordon Research Conferences (2010). He is an IEEE Senior Member and a member of the American (APS) and European (EPS) Physical Societies.
