RESEARCH INTERESTS

In my previous research I proposed and developed the model of superdiffusive spin transport as the driving mechanism for the ultrafast demagnetisation. 
I have recently proposed a mechanism of injection of ultrashort spin-current pulses in semiconductors.
My current research focuses on the theoretical treatment of strongly-out-of-equilibrium dynamics in real materials and heterostructures. In particular I am interested in novel phenomena arising from the non trivial interplay of strongly-out-of-equilibrium transport, thermalisation dynamics and formation of transient electromagnetic fields in the ultrafast timescale. 
I am currently interested in 
- Ultrafast spin injection in semiconductors 
- Ultrafast dynamics in topological insulators and low dimensional materials
- THz radiation generation by ferromagnet/heavy metal bilayers
- THz radiation interaction with matter 
- Discontinuous Galerkin approximation of the Boltzmann-Maxwell problem for ultrafast thermalisation/transport
