Titiksha Srivastava, Laureate of the Chargé.e de recherche CNRS competition

Titiksha Srivastava, originally from India, cultivated her interest in nanoscience by obtaining a Master's degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at Grenoble Alpes University. Her internship at the SPINTEC/Université Grenoble Alpes laboratory marked the start of her research career in spintronics. During her doctorate (SPINTEC/Université Grenoble Alpes), she became particularly involved in the study of skyrmions, magnetic textures that hold great promise for various applications such as memory, logic, unconventional computing and high-frequency devices. His work has demonstrated a large variation in the antisymmetric exchange interaction known as the Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction (DMI) under the effect of an applied electric field, opening up new prospects for their applications.
As a post-doc, Titiksha continued to explore complex magnetic textures at UMPhy CNRS/Thales. In collaboration with C2N and SPEC- CEA, she broadened her horizons by focusing on magnonics. Her contribution was marked by the demonstration of the resonant dynamics of skyrmions with a high-frequency mode accompanied by the emission of very short-wavelength spin waves, of great interest for magnonic devices.

Motivated by her continuing interest in academic research, she pursued a second postdoctorate at CEA SPEC, where her research focused on the nonlinear dynamics of spin waves for innovative applications in unconventional computing.
Laureate of the Chargé.e de recherche CNRS competition, Titiksha joined C2N in October 2023 as a member of the NOMADE team. Her research focuses on spintronics, in particular magnetic textures, linear and nonlinear dynamics of magnetisation, spin waves and the control of magnetic properties by electric field.
