NPL fellow Olga Kazakova has been appointed as a visiting professor at the University of Manchester in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, part of the School of Engineering.
This is part of the developing institutional relationship between the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the University of Manchester.
Olga Kazakova joined NPL in 2002, becoming an NPL Fellow in 2019. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and a Scientific Area Leader for Quantum Materials in Sensors at NPL. She is actively involved in the Materials for Quantum Network, being a Chair of the Spin & Topology Material Interest Group and an Executive Committee representative. She is also a member of several industrial advisory boards for organisations such as the Henry Royce Institute.
Olga is an author of 190 peer-reviewed publications and has delivered over 180 presentations at scientific conferences. She is also a recipient of numerous national and international awards, including the Intel European Research and Innovation Award (2008), NPL Rayleigh Award and Serco Global Pulse Award (2011). Her research interests include functional (electronic, optical, magnetic and thermal) (sub)nanoscale studies of quantum materials and the development of novel sensing approaches.
Professor Olga Kazakova, NPL Fellow, said: “I am thrilled to be appointed as a Visiting Professor at the University of Manchester in the area of Quantum Materials. We have worked together with great success on exciting projects such as the Graphene Flagship and most recently also within the UK Quantum Materials Network. I will continue to work tirelessly to reinforce our mutually beneficial collaboration.”
Professor Richard Curry, Vice Dean for Research and Innovation for the Faculty of Science and Engineering, said: “I am delighted that we have been able to appoint Olga as our first Visiting Professor from the UK’s National Physical Laboratory (NPL). Not only is Olga a world class scientist working at the leading edge of this exciting area, but her appointment will also further strengthen the University of Manchester’s relationship with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), helping to pave the way for further collaboration between the two institutions.”
