Research Interests

My research focuses on magnetic systems with robust and controllable excitations, such as spin waves and their quanta: magnons. Although my main interest is on fundamental phenomena, an important motivation is the potential use of these magnetic excitations in future low-power consumption devices.

Antiskyrmion Magnons
Topological magnons in (anti)skyrmion crystals.
