Matthew Daniels is a NRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Alternative Computing Group in the Nanoscale Device Characterization Division of the Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML). He received a B.S. in physics from Clemson University and a Ph.D. in physics from Carnegie Mellon University. For his doctoral research, he developed a semiclassical formalism for exposing a novel, spin-like degree of freedom in antiferromagnetic spin waves. The work enables researchers to use antiferromagnetic insulators to perform semiclassical quantum computations. Matthew is working with Mark Stiles on theoretical models for neuromorphic computing with spintronic devices, specifically on networks of spin-torque oscillators.
