New Media Handling Seminar

A 6-hour seminar on "New Media Handling" will be given by Dr. Xavi Marti. He obtained his Phd in materials science in 2010 for the research work in spintronics. During his post-doc at UC Berkeley, he boosted IGSresearch in order to develop spintronics-based technology with applications ranging from the nanoscale to the geophysics scale. He is co-author of over 70 scientific publications cited over 1000 times, and holds patents either as co-inventor or co-owner. In 2013, he co-founded the project Penyalab, a start-up incubator at Universitat de Barcelona. He is enthusiastic about science dissemination and has engaged over 28,000 followers of spintronics.

The New Media Handling Seminar will take place at the Institute of Physics, Czech Academy of Sciences, Na Slovance 1999/2, Prague 8, 18221. The metro station is Ladvi, C line (Red). The Seminar starts at 9:00. Here is the Google maps link.
