Short biography

Tobias Kosub finished his studies at the Institute of Physics, Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany, in 2010 doing research on the exchange bias effect in F/AF/F trilayer structures. In 2011, he joined the emerging group for Magnetic Nanomembranes led by Dr. Denys Makarov at the IFW Dresden as a PhD student researching the electric control of magnetism.
