Liza Herrera Diez

I have an interdisciplinary background in physics and chemistry. From 2003 to 2007 I studied physical chemistry at the National University of Cordoba (Argentina) and from 2008 to 2010 I conducted my doctoral studies at the Max-Planck Institute for Solid State Research while enrolled in the physics doctoral school at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. During this time I performed studies on magnetic domain wall dynamics and magneto-transport in devices based on diluted ferromagnetic semiconductors (DMS). I also designed and realised the concept of light control of magnetic properties in DMS devices by surface functionalisation with organic dye-molecules. From 2011 to 2012 I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Institut Néel in Grenoble. During this postdoctoral stay I worked on electric field control of magnetic anisotropy and domain wall dynamics in ferromagnetic field-effect transistor devices.

In early 2013 I joined C2N as a postdoctoral researcher to work on magnetic domain wall motion by spin torques in ferromagnetic nanodevices. Since October 2013 I am a CNRS researcher and my main scientific interests are oriented towards the control of domain wall dynamics in multifunctional nanodevices.
