Julie Grollier received the Ph.D. degree from University Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France. Her Ph.D. thesis was dedicated to the study of a new effect in spintronics: the spin transfer torque. After two years of post-doc, first in Groningen University then in Institut d’ Electronique Fondamentale, she joined CNRS in 2005. Dr. Grollier is now a group leader in the CNRS/Thales lab in France. Her current research interests include spintronics (dynamics of nanomagnets under spin torque) and new nanodevices for cognitive computing. She is also chair of the interdisciplinary research network GDR BioComp coordinating national French efforts to progress toward the hardware realization of bioinspired systems. Dr. Grollier is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and was awarded the Jacques Herbrand prize of the French Academy of Science. She is the recipient of two European Research Council grants.
