Abhay has a background in solid-state materials and nanotechnology. After completing a Master of Technology (M.Tech) from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) in 2016, he immediately pursued a PhD degree. During his PhD, he investigated chiral magnetic skyrmions in Heusler compounds. After completing his PhD in 2021, he started working as a postdoc researcher. During his postdoc, he is working on skyrmion hosting van der Waals compounds and their heterostructures. Currently, he is a principal investigator (PI) and scientific pillar coordinator in the NISE department of MPI-Halle.

Research interests

Stabilization of skyrmionic spin textures in van der Waals compounds and their heterostructures, skyrmion-superconductor interface, skyrmion dynamics, micromagnetic simulations
