prof. dr. T. Banerjee

Tamalika Banerjee is a Rosalind Franklin Fellow and a Full Professor of 'Spintronics of Functional Materials' in the Physics of Nanodevices group at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials. 

She studied Physics at Presidency University, Kolkata, India and obtained her PhD from the University of Madras, India. She was a Visiting Scientist at the Francis Bitter Magnet Laboratory, MIT, USA and a Post Doctoral Fellow at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India, before she joined the MESA+Institute for Nanotechnology at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. In 2009, she moved to the University of Groningen and since spring 2019, is a Full Professor at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials.

Her research group on ‘Spintronics of Functional Materials’ studies spin transport in functional material interfaces involving complex-oxides and their integration with graphene and topological insulators, relevant for spin logic and reconfigurable spintronics architecture. She pioneered a new technique to study spintronic devices at the nanometer scale. She has currently extended her research line to develop cross disciplinary research programs on new spin-based memristive device platforms with adaptable physical properties that can emulate the cognitive tasks of the human brain.

Her research is funded by NWO-VIDI, NWO-nano (FOM), NWO-DST and Dieptestrategie grants.
