Short bio


Andrii Chumak studied physics at Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and received his PhD in 2009 in the group of Gennadii Melkov. After his PostDoc at the group of Burkard Hillebrands at the University of Kaiserslautern, he continued as Principal Investigator researching magnonic crystals and spin-orbit phenomena. In 2016, Dr. Chumak finished his Habilitation, obtained a prestigious ERC Starting Grant, and continued his research as a Juniorprofessor (Assistant Professor) and the Head of the ERC Junior Research Group “NanoMagnonics”. Andrii Chumak became a Full Professor and the Head of the Nanomagnetism and Magnonics Group at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna in September 2019. The group's scientific interests cover a broad scope of solid-state physics topics, including magnonics, spintronics, superconductivity,and quantum physics. A. Chumak is the author of around a hundred peer-reviewed publications in high-impact international journals, was/is a Principal Investigator in eight national and European projects, and is actively serving the scientific community on the international level.
