Title: Room temperature magnetoelectricity by interface coupling of oxides
Judith received her Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in 1991. She was an IBM Post-doctoral Fellow at Stanford University and IBM Almaden from 1991-1995. She was a Reader at Imperial College from 1995 until 2003. She was then a Long Term visiting staff member at Los Alamos National Lab in 2003 and she has retained that position as a visitor since. In late 2003, she joined the University of Cambridge where she is now a Full Professor in Materials Science. She is also a Fellow of Trinity College in Cambridge. She works on the materials science and applied physics of functional oxide materials, including superconductor, magnetic materials, ferroelectrics and semiconductors. She has published over 250 papers and is holder of an ERC advanced investigator grant on functional oxide interfaces.
