Alina Deac holds a diploma degree in Physics from the Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, Romania, and Master and PhD from the Joseph Fourier University in Grenoble, France. The focus of her PhD work was spin-momentum transfer-induced phenomena. She finished her PhD at SPINTEC in 2005. Thereafter, she continued to work in this field first as a JSPS Research Fellow at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Tsukuba (Japan), a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the National Institute for Standards and Technology in Boulder (USA) and Forschungszentrum Jülich (Germany), and finally as an Ambizione Fellow at the Ecole Fédérale Polytechnique in Lausanne (Swizerland). Since October 2011, she is leader of the Spintronics group at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden – Rossendorf in Germany. Her present research is focused on spin-torque oscillators for wireless Information-Communication Technology, and in integrating new, utra-high anisotropy Heusler alloys in such devices.
