      Solveig Felton joined the Centre for Nanostructured Media as a lecturer in 2013. She has a broad background in magnetic materials, having used a wide range of different materials characterisation techniques. Currently her interests are focused on nanomagnetism, studying magnetic domain structures and artificial frustrated magnets using techniques such as Magnetic Force Microscopy (MFM) and Lorentz Transmission Electron Microscopy (LTEM) and studying the magnetic interactions in molecular materials using Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) magnetometry.

      Solveig obtained an M.Sc. in Materials Engineering from Uppsala University, Sweden in 2001, and a Ph.D. in Solid State Physics from the same university in 2005 with a thesis entitled Tunable Magnetic Properties of Transition Metal Compounds. After a post doc in the EPR and Diamond group of the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick she moved to the Department of Materials at Imperial College London in August 2009 as a post doc working on Molecular Spintronics in Sandrine Heutz's group. In 2011 she took on a temporary lectureship in the same department, using LTEM to study micromagnetic states in primarily artificial spin ice systems.
