Dr. Plamen Stamenov received a BSc degree from the University of Sofia (Bulgaria) in Theoretical and Experimental Physics in 2002, with research work on the magnetic and structural properties of some manganese perovskites. He completed his PhD research in 2007 under the supervision of Prof. J. M. D. Coey in Trinity College Dublin. This research focused on metals, semimetals and semiconductors for spin electronics applications. After completing his PhD, he stayed on in Trinity College as a research fellow and teaching assistant within the School of Physics and CRANN conducting research in the field of spin-dependent transport, and collaborating with industry in applied magnetics and microwave technology. In 2010, Dr. Stamenov became an Ussher Lecturer in Physics and Principal Investigator within CRANN in the area of nanomagnetism.
