About me

I use first principles theory and electronic structure calculations to investigate the properties of materials, particularly magnetism and magnetic materials. Recently, I am interested in strain gradient or curvature induced magnetic phenomena (flexomagnetism).

I recieved my PhD at the Uppsala University, division for Materials Theory, in November 2016, with a thesis focused on first principles theory of magnetic materials. After that I spent three years as post doctoral researcher at the ETH Zürich in Zürich, Switzerland, where I studied novel phenomena in multiferroic materials. Next, I started my current research direction of flexomagnetism, as VR International Postdoc hosted at KTH and Institut de Ciencia de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC) in Barcelona, Spain.

My publications are listed on Google Scholar.
