Abstract

I plan to start computational research on flexomagnetism, defined as the coupling between magnetism and strain gradients in solid materials. First principles calculations in combination with other computational methods (e.g. Monte Carlo or atomistic spin dynamics) will be used to study the effects of strain gradients in magnetic materials.
