Short bio

Andrii Chumak was born in 1982 in Uman, Ukraine and he is Professor of Experimental Solid State Physics at the Faculty of Physics from the University of Vienna since September 2019.

After studying physics at the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kiev from 1999-2005, Dr. Chumak wrote his PhD thesis on parametric processes of spin waves and received his PhD from the university’s Faculty of Radiophysics in 2009. In 2004, he worked as a visiting scientist at the Department of Physics at Colorado State University. After receiving his PhD, Dr. Chumak continued his research at the Department of Physics at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern as a postdoctoral researcher and became a Principal Investigator in 2011 to study magnonic crystals and spin-orbit phenomena. In 2016, Dr. Chumak habilitated at TU Kaiserslautern, received the prestigious ERC Starting Grant "Magnonic Nano-Circuits for Novel Computer Systems”, and continued his research as Junior Professor and Head of the ERC Young Investigator Group in Kaiserslautern. In 2019, Andrii Chumak was appointed University Professor and Head of the "Nanomagnetism and Magnonics” group at the Faculty of Physics at the University of Vienna. A. Chumak is the author of about a hundred publications in high-impact international journals and has participated in numerous national and European projects.
