Justin Shaw is a project leader in the Spin Electronic Group. His current research focusses on developing and applying new measurement techniques based on optical, microwave and ultra-fast extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation sources to study spin and phonon dynamics in thin films, nanostructures, and devices. He earned bachelor degrees in both materials science engineering and music theory & composition in 1997, and doctoral degrees in physics in 2004 and in materials science engineering in 2007, all at Arizona State University. He was a National Research Council postdoctoral fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, Colorado, from 2005 to 2007. In 2007 he became a staff scientist at NIST. He received an U.S. Department of Commerce Bronze medal in 2013 for his work in magnetodynamic measurements of nanostructures and was an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer in 2019.
