Dr. Shinji Yuasa received a PhD in Physics from Keio University in 1996. After receiving his doctorate, he served as a staff scientist at the Electrotechnical Laboratory (Tsukuba, Japan) where he worked on spin-dependent transport in metallic magnetic multilayers. Since 2001, he has been a staff scientist at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), working on the physics and device applications of MTJs. Since 2010, he has been a director of the Spintronics Research Center at AIST. He has published more than 100 peer reviewed papers and has given more than 80 invited talks at international conferences. For his achievement of the giant TMR effect in MgO-based MTJs, he has been awarded or co-awarded 20 prizes, including the Asahi Award in 2007. He is now serving as a program co-chair for the 2013 Joint MMM/Intermag Conference and is a member of the advisory committee for the MMM Conference and an editor of Applied Physics Express.
