Senior scientist and deputy director at SPINTEC Laboratory.
My research topic is magnetism and spintronics of low-dimensional structures, with a special focus on magnetization processes with and within domain walls. I am mostly concerned with fundamental processes. I investigate model systems, for a better knowledge and control. This lead me to develop an expertise at the frontier of several areas : experimental and theoretical micromagnetism ; surface and interface magnetism, material science; epitaxial growth and chemical synthesis, particularly for self-organization; advanced magnetic microscopies. My main current focus is fundamental issues related to the prospects for a 3D race-track memory using magnetic nanowires. I am currently coordinating a European project on this topic (http://mem3d.eu).
