Short biography

Robert Streubel finished his studies at the Institute of Applied Physics, Dresden University of Technology, Germany, in 2011 doing research on strain-mediated coupling in magnetoelectronic composite materials.

Already during his studies Robert Streubel worked as a research assistant at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, at the Institute of Applied Physics (TUD) and the Institute for Integrative Nanosciences, Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research Dresden (IFW Dresden), Germany.

In 2011 he started his Ph.D. research on rolled-up magnetic architectures/ magnetism on curved surfaces working at the IFW Dresden. In 2013 he joined the ERC group of Denys Makarov who was awarded an ERC Starting Grant.
