Tamalika Banerjee studied Physics at Presidency University, Kolkata, India. She received her PhD degree in 2000 from the University of Madras, India, working on ‘Studying irradiation effects in high temperature superconductors’ for which she received the Best thesis award from the Indian Physics Association. She was a Visiting Scientist at the Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory, MIT, USA where she was introduced to the field of Spintronics. She also worked as Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India, working on superconducting resonators before joining the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, University of Twente, in 2002. She pioneered a new technique to study spintronic devices on the nanometer scale which has been applied to different material systems and their devices. In 2009, she joined the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials as a Rosalind Franklin fellow tenure track and set up her own research group focusing on new approaches in Spintronics –materials and devices- for Beyond Moore technology and Internet of Things. Since Spring 2019, she is a Full Professor in ‘Spintronics of Functional Materials’ at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials. She is a Senior member of IEEE and a member of several professional societies. She is a member of the Steering group of NanolabNL and of the NWO Domain Science working group on Physics for Technology and Instrumentation. Her research is funded by NWO-VIDI, Rosalind Franklin fellowship, NWO-nano (FOM), NWO-DST (bilateral), FOM and Dieptestrategie grants.
