Personal profile


Tamalika Banerjee 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 joined the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials as a Rosalind Franklin Fellow and a VIDI grant.  Since 2019 she is a full professor and chair of Spintronics of Functional Materials group. She is also a Scientific Associate Investigator, FLEET, ARC Centre of Excellence in Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies, Australia. Her current research focus is on studying emergent phenomena at quantum critical regions, exploiting strong correlation effects and topology in quantum materials. Their work is fundamental to the understanding and control of topological magnetism and relevant for the study and design of  reconfigurable spintronics architecture for alternative computing applications. She is a Senior member of IEEE and serves in Program committees of international conferences on Magnetism (IEEE). She is a Scientific Advisory Board member of the Lorentz Centre, Program Board member of the Cognigron Centre, member of the Steering group of NanolabNL and of the NWO Domain Science working group on Physics for Technology and Instrumentation. She is an Editorial Board Member of Advanced Physics Research (Wiley), of Scientific Reports (npj) and an Associate Editor (Nanoelectronics) in Frontiers in Nanotechnology journals. Her research is funded by NWO-VIDI, NWO-nano (FOM), NWO-DST,  NWA and Dieptestrategie and Cognigron grants.

In a recent work, we have demonstrated efficient integration of memristive devices directly on semiconducting platforms for on-chip applications and importantly with substantial reduction in areal footprint, while exploiting the physical properties at the device interface.

Our work on topological textures in itinerant ferromagnets,  their surprising stability and resilience over an unexpected region of parameter space finds relevance for new magnetic memory technologies including alternative computing strategies
