About

NANOMAGNETISM

My research explores lateral confinement and coupling effects in nanomagnets through both experimental investigations and numerical modeling. In addition to being an exciting subject of study from a fundamental perspective, nanomagnets are also important for the advancement of technology, for example, in spintronics devices, storage media, and for medical applications. My present work focuses on the magnetization reversal and spin excitations of patterned magnetic elements. For details on magnetics research at CSU see the Magnetic Materials and Applied Magnetics Laboaratory (MMAML) website.
