Materials researcher Nicola Spaldin talks in the ETH Podcast about her pioneering work in the research of multiferroic drugs.
Nicola Spaldin, Professor of Materials Theory at ETH Zürich, is one of the leading researchers in her field. She was awarded with some of the most prestigious prizes for her pioneering work in the area of multiferroics. Multiferroics are materials that are both ferromagnetic and ferroelectric. Having both properties in one material simultaneously is what makes multiferroics special. Nicola Spaldin conducts research projects and aims to make computers energy efficient. In this episode of the ETH-Podcast we talk to her about her sparking energy and motivation to teach and research and listen to her play the clarinet with her chamber music ensemble.
