Title: Topological insulators: a romance between momentum and spin

Dr. Ewelina Hankiewicz is a Professor at the Wuerzburg University in Germany. She received her Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the Institute of Physics Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw in 2001 for the work on the magnetic polarons on the antiferromagnetic lattices. She was a Postdoc and a Faculty for several years in United States. She was a Postdoc at Texas A&M University and the University of Columbia-Missouri and an Assistant Professor at Fordham University in New York. The research of Dr. Ewelina Hankiewicz has been centered on the spin and charge transport in the nanosize systems, the physics of topological insulators as well as competing phenomena of magnetism and superconductivity.
