Jesús Alejandro De Sousa

J. Alejandro De Sousa joined ICMAB-CSIC and the MULFOX/Spinmad group as a Post-doc researcher in April 2023. Previously, he obtained his degree in chemistry (Licenciatura) at the University of the Andes (Venezuela, 2015) and completed the Master degree in Fundamental and Applied Electrochemistry at the same university (Venezuela, 2018). In 2018 J. Alejandro joined the NANOMOL department at ICMAB-CSIC for his Ph.D. under the supervision of Dr. Núria Crivillers and Prof. Dr. Concepció Rovira (ICMAB, CSIC) with a Severo Ochoa FIP scholarship, in the frame of the research line “Molecular materials for electronics”. He obtained the Ph.D. degree in Materials Science (Autonomous University of Barcelona) with “International” and “Cum laude” mentions in December of 2022. His current post-doctoral research focuses on spin-thermoelectric devices (Spin caloritronics).


Silvia Damerio

Silvia Damerio joined ICMAB-CSIC and the MAGNEPIC project as a Post-doc researcher in February 2022. She obtained her BSc. (Hons - 2015) and MSc. (Hons - 2017) in Chemistry from the University of Genova (Italy) and University of Groningen (The Netherlands), respectively. She subsequently joined the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials of the University of Groningen for her PhD, which she received in 2022 with a thesis about modulated phases in ferroic oxides. She recently received a grant of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions to investigate dynamical spintronic devices and continue her research at ICMAB.


Takayuki Shiino

Takayuki Shiino joined ICMAB-CSIC and the MAGNEPIC project as a postdoctoral researcher in March 2024. He received his BSc in Physics (2013) and MSc in Materials Science and Engineering (2016) from Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan) and KAIST (South Korea), respectively. He received his Ph.D. from Nagoya University (Japan) in 2019 with a thesis on a quantum critical phenomenon in heavy-fermion materials. After the PhD, he experienced two postdoctoral researches: Uppsala University (2019 - 2021, Sweden) and KAIST (2022 - 2024, South Korea) for the studies of quasicrystals and spintronics, respectively. His current postdoctoral research focuses on spintronic devices with insulating ferrimagnetic materials.


Weronika Janus

Weronika Janus joined ICMAB-CSIC and SMARTSPIN project as a Postdoc researcher in November 2023. She studied at AGH University of Krakow, Poland, where she obtained her BSc in Biomedical Engineering (2018), MSc in Biomedical Engineering - Bionanotechnology (2019), and she started her PhD in Physics (2019). During her PhD, she focused on the strain manipulation of magnetic properties in antiferromagnetic thin films. Her current research interest is in developing innovative magnetic insulator-based spintronic memory devices, where the information can be written and read by all-electrical means
