Post-doctoral Researcher



Shauna Robbennolt received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2011 before going on to complete her PhD at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2016. Her graduate research was funded through an NSF-Engineering Research Center (TANMS) which aims to create devices based on electric control of magnetism on the nanoscale. Her role in the center was to create magnetic nanomaterials with properties tailored to the devices envisioned by her collaborators within the center. In particular she investigated self-assembly and magnetoelectric effects in metallic nanocrystals (FePt, FePd) as well as static and dynamic magnetic properties of metal oxide thin films (cobalt ferrite, nickel-zinc ferrite) made from both nanocrystals and sol-gel methods. Recently, she began working as a postdoctoral researcher in the group in the area of spin-porics. In particular, she is investigating the fabrication and magnetoelectric characterization of (i) a nanoporous Fe-based alloy created by the electrochemical treatment of sputtered films, (ii) nanoporous L10FePt thin films and (iii) nanoporous, semi-conducting cobalt ferrite.
