# Research interests

**Ultrafast demagnetization in metals**with focus on laser-induced electronic transport in metallic multilayers**Magnetization dynamics**including numerical simulations and analytical models of magnetization dynamics induced by magnetic fields, spin currents, spin-orbit torques or laser pulses; with special interest in the dynamics of magnetic domain walls and other magnetic topological defects**Magnetic properties of disordered alloys**ranging from ferro- and antiferromagnets up to noncollinear topological insulators doped by magnetic atoms; the main method of research is the atomistic spin dynamics based on ab initio calculations
