Jamileh Beik Mohammadi

Assistant Professor


  • College of Arts and Sciences
  • Physics


Dr. Jamileh Beik Mohammadi obtained her Ph.D. from The University of Alabama in 2017 and was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Center for Quantum Phenomena at New York University from 2018 to 2019. Her research is in the area of magnetism and spintronics. She utilizes experimental methods and theoretical modeling to design and characterize magnetic thin films and multilayers. The application of these studies is in spintronic devices such as magnetic sensors in GPS systems and magnetic random-access memories. Her research aims to exploit the magnetic properties of materials used in these devices, to understand the underlying physics and improve their performance.
