Current Research:

Professor Barsukov's lab designs magnetic nanoscale devices and studies spin dynamics and spin transport using microwave/terahertz spectroscopy. The goal of this research is to better understand the interplay of magnonic and phononic excitations and to develop energy-efficient spintronics applications.

Research Interests:

- Experimental Condensed Matter Physics
- Spintronics


PhD 2012, University Duisburg-Essen, Germany


- Marie-Curie Fellowship 2007
