Dr Marta Crisanti - PhD student

University of Warwick

Dr Marta Crisanti Joined the Skymion Project in 2016.

Her PhD involved a Warwick/ILL project studying the experimental properties of Skyrmions using neutron scattering [1-3]   and muon spectroscopy techniques [4], under the joint supervision of Professor Don Paul (Warwick) and Dr Robert Cubitt (ILL).

Marta was based at ILL in the Large Structures Group.

Marta is currently a post doc working at TU - Delft.
