Teaching in 2020
Michael studied theoretical physics at the University of Regensburg in Germany where he also did his PhD in the group of Prof. John Schliemann. At the same time, he had close collaborations with the experimental groups of Prof. Dominique Bougeard at the University of Regensburg and Prof. Thomas Schäpers of the Jülich Research Center in Germany. While doing his PhD, he also spent some time researching with Prof. Francisco Mireles at the Center of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology in Ensenada, Mexico.
Currently, his main focus is the theoretical investigation of the unusual magnetoelectric phenomena in novel 2D materials such as bilayer graphene, TMDCs, or silicene.
Aside from that, he is interested in spintronics. In this field, he studies spin-orbit related effects such as spin relaxation and weak antilocalization in semiconductor nanostructures.
