I am a Post-Doctoral Research Assistant at Trinity College Dublin working with Prof. Stefano Sanvito on the SFI funded project 'MMDesign'. This project aims to develop revolutionary modelling of magnetic tunnel junctions using a multi-scale approach linking first-principles calculations with large scale spin dynamics and micro-magnetics. I attained my PhD in 2015 under the supervision of Prof. Roy Chantrell studying the effects of granular media on the heat assisted magnetic recording paradigm. For this I extensively developed my own code including high performance computing using Nvidia CUDA.
