Profile Summary 

Dr. Sucheta Mondal completed her Ph.D. from S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Kolkata under the supervision of Prof. Anjan Barman (2014-2019). She studied ultrafast magnetization dynamics in nanoscale magnetic materials. After working as a visiting researcher for a few months in Kolkata, she joined the group of Prof. Jeffery Bokor at UC Berkeley in 2019. At Berkeley, her research was inclined toward the electrical- and optical characterization of magnetic heterostructures. She has contributed to some of the important branches of spintronics, such as, spin-orbitronics, magnonics, straintronics, optomagnetism, graphene-spintronics, etc. Her future research interests include power optimization, downscaling, and elevation of operational speed in advanced spintronic devices and exploration of quantum magnonics.
