Ousmane Ly, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow


Quantum transport, Numerical simulations, Topological antiferromagnetic materials, Spin-orbit and spin transfert torques

Research Interests

In my research, I focus on antiferromagnetic materials with the aim at understanding the interplay between magnetic properties and topological aspects. At the same time, I investigate the physics of spin-orbit and spin transfert torques at the interfaces of magnetic heterostructures.
