About

I obtained a Ph.D. in Materials Physics from KTH - Royal Institute of Technology, in Stockholm, Sweden in 2011. My thesis is freely accessible at: http://urn.kb.se/resolve?urn=urn:nbn:se:kth:diva-26955. From February 2012 to July 2014 I served as a postdoctoral scholar in the group led by Jo Stöhr and Hermann Dürr at Stanford University and at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. In August 2014 I joined the Department of Physics at Stockholm University. In November 2014 I was awarded one of the International Career (INCA) Grants, co-funded by the Swedish Research Council and EU's 7th Framework Programme, for the research project "THz spin control", which will run during the period 2015-2019. In September 2016, I was awarded an European Research Council Starting Grant for the project "Understanding the speed limits of magnetism", which will be funded during the period 2017-2022. Since November 2016, I have a tenured position (equivalent to Associate Professor) at Stockholm University. As an experimental physicist, my research is devoted to ultrafast dynamics and transport in condensed matter, in particular addressing spin-dependent phenomena. My group's current research efforts focus on the use of strong THz radiation to drive non-equilibrium dynamics in materials, probed with femtosecond IR laser pulses or femtosecond x-ray pulses generated at free electron lasers.
