Presentation title: Designing magnetoresistive sensors with tunable characteristics
Diana Leitao graduated in Applied Physics from University of Porto, and has a PhD in Physics from University of Porto and Materials Science Institute of Madrid ICMM-CSIC. She then joined INESC Microsystems and Nanotechnologies in Lisbon, first as a postdoctoral researcher, and later as a FCT Investigator Starting Grantee to lead her research line in magnetic nanodevices. Since September 2021 she is an Assistant Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology. Her research focus is on exploring novel thin-film stackings, designs, and hybrid technology integration to improve the performance of magnetoresistive sensing devices and provide added functionalities.
Diana Leitao actively contributes to the international magnetism community via IEEE Magnetics Society and European Magnetism Association. She is also involved in the organization of main conferences in her research area, contributing to the scientific program and general organization.
