Kinga joined Prof. Manfra's group in July of 2023 following a Postdoctoral Research Associate position at the University of South Florida advancing the growth and modification of transition metal chalcogenides and magnetic 2D heterostructures. In 2018 she received her PhD in Physics from Institute of Physics Polish Academy of Sciences, where she studied perpendicular magnetic anisotropy in magnetic tunnel junctions heterostructures grown by molecular beam epitaxy.

Kinga is a dedicated physicist with a strong focus on thin films growth, characterization, and materials science. In Prof. Manfra’s research group she will be developing the growth of extremely high-quality AlGaAs-GaAs semiconductor heterostructures to probe quantum phenomena.
