Amal received both her B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Carnegie Mellon University in 2011. She then earned a PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University, where she was
funded by both NSF and NDSEG graduate research fellowships until her graduation in 2016. Her PhD research focused on radio frequency devices using magnetic and magnetoelectric thin-film composites.
Her current research explores new possibilities for ultrafast switching of magnetic nanodots. This project involves examining avenues for reducing the energy and time required for switching as well as completely integrating the magnetic nanoscale devices into semiconductor electrical systems.

Maite received her Chemical Engineering degree and M.S. in Materials Science in 2012 from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU). She joined the Basque Center for Materials (BCMaterials) where she completed her PhD on magnetic vortex-state nanodiscs for biomedical applications in the Fall of 2017.
Maite now studies multiferroic heterostructures and their integration into microfluidic devices for single-particle and cell manipulation with the Bokor group at UC Berkeley.

Zafer completed his PhD in Materials Science and Engineering at UC Riverside in 2016, followed by a year of postdoctoral study where he focused on growth and phase engineering of novel two-dimensional materials.
His research interests include bottom-up synthesis of graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) for high-performance electronic device applications.
Juan Pablo "JP" Llinás
4th year graduate student, EECS
jpllinas AT berkeley DOT edu
JP investigates the electrical transport and optical properties of self-assembled graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) and GNR heterojunctions via device measurements and optical spectroscopy. His goal is to fabricate high performance GNR devices.

akshaypattabi AT berkeley DOT edu
His research interests include ultrafast magnetization dynamics and spintronics. He is currently working on integrating ultrafast magnetism phenomena with conventional spintronics. This project involves ultrafast heating of nanomagnetic devices by ps electrical pulses, rather than by ps or fs laser pulses.

Roberto Lo Conte
rloconte AT berkeley DOT edu
Roberto received his B.S. and M.S. in Physics Engineering from the Politecnico di Milano (Italy) in 2009 and 2012, and his M.S. in Engineering (Microelectronics) from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in
Stockholm (Sweden) in 2012, with a final project in Spintronics. Roberto joined the Institute of Physics of the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz (Germany), where
he received his Doctorate in Physics in December 2015. His PhD project was focused on the study of spin-orbit torques and Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction in low symmetry magnetic heterostructures.
After he completed his PhD, Roberto joined the Bokor Group at UC Berkeley in March 2016. His current research topic is the investigation of magnetic DW motion in multiferroic heterostructures, which seem to offer a new path towards the development of energy efficient memory, logic, and microfluidic devices. X-ray photo-emission electron microscopy, MOKE and Kerr microscopy are some of the experimental tools employed in his esperimental work.

Jon received his engineering degree and M.A. in nanosciences in 2011 from the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) of Toulouse, France. During his studies he completed an exchange year in Tohoku University
in Sendai (Japan), where he initiated his lab training in the Information and Storage Systems group. He then worked as a PhD student on field and current induced magnetisation dynamics in metallic and semiconducting
ferromagnets at the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides in Orsay (near Paris).
After he completed his PhD in 2014, he joined the Bokor group at UC Berkeley in order to study ultrafast magnetisation dynamics and spin-orbital effects by using an amplified femtosecond laser and different magnetic probing techniques such as MOKE or MSHG.
