About the person

Dr. Leoni Breth completed her undergraduate studies in Technical Physics at the Vienna University of Technology with a focus on Condensed Matter Physics. She continued her work on magnetoresistive sensors during her PhD as a research assistant at the Austrian Institute of Technology under the lead of Prof. Hubert Brueckl. Additionally to the fabrication of microstructured multilayer sensors she also developed a theoretical model related to switching field distributions based on thermal fluctuations in cooperation with Prof. Dieter Suess (Vienna University of Technology, now at University of Vienna).  In her subsequent engagement in Prof. Suess’s group she simulated switching field distributions for exchange-couple multilayer hard disk media at elevated temperatures. After graduation as PhD with distinction in October 2016 she joined Prof. Fangohr and Dr. Ondrej Hovorka at the University of Southampton, UK for six months. In a joint project with the University of Oxford among others she contributed to the modelling of skyrmions in bulk B20 materials. After a little more than two years in the development of safety-critical software at TTTech-Auto in Vienna, Dr. Leoni Breth is now a project assistant at the Department of Integrated Sensor Systems sind mid May 2020. In a FFG-funded project she works out how measurements of First-Order-Reversal Curves (FORCs) can be used to identify relevant parameters for hard metals by using Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms.
