Frédéric Bonell is a research scientist at CNRS in SPINTEC, Grenoble. He received his PhD degree in physics from the Institut Jean Lamour (IJL) – University of Lorraine in 2009. From 2010 to 2019, he was a postdoctoral fellow at Osaka University, then a Ramón y Cajal scientist at the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) in Barcelona.
His research activity lies at the interface between material science and spintronics. It is dedicated to the study of spin transport/dynamics in magnetic multilayers grown by molecular beam epitaxy. His recent interests concern spin-orbitronics with epitaxial van der Waals materials, including topological insulators and 2D magnets.
