Prem Piramanayagam

Nanyang Technological University Spintronics

Associate Prof. S.N. Piramanayagam has an experience of 30 years in the field of magnetism with research topics ranging from amorphous magnetic alloys for energy applications, permanent magnetic materials to thin films and nanostructures for recording and spintronics applications. His current interest lies in the inter-disciplinary areas of magnetism, electronics and nanotechnology. His research aims to gain understanding and solve issues related to areas such as Spintronics, Magnetic Recording and Energy. He has recently secured a multi-million dollar grant for research on Spin-based Neuromorphic Computing.

S.N. Piramanayagam obtained his Bachelor's degree from Madurai Kamaraj University, India in 1985. He did his Masters degree in Physics from University of Kerala, Trivandrum, India and his PhD from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, India. After his PhD, he carried out further research at Shinshu University, Japan (from 1995-1999).

S.N. Piramanayagam is a senior member of IEEE. He serves as an editor of IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, as an editorial board member of Scientific reports (Nature publishing Group) and Physica Status Solidi-RRL. He has served as the chair of IEEE Magnetics Society Technical Committee. He has more than 175 publications in ISI journals, filed several patents and edited a book titled "Developments in Data Storage: Materials Perspective". Ten PhD students and several FYP and Masters students have graduated under his supervision. Prior to joining NTU, he worked in Data Storage Institute, Singapore (A*STAR).
