Dr. Rosa Alejandra “Ale” Lukaszew joined DARPA as a program manager in the Defense Sciences Office in January 2017. Her current research interests include understanding and developing new materials, structures, and devices incorporating strongly correlated electrons–particularly exploiting topological correlations to create pathways to new paradigms in electronics for applications in memory, logic, energy conversion devices, and sensors.
The emergent understanding of topological phenomena, along with discoveries of topological excitations in materials, offers great opportunities to extend the storage/logic device roadmap beyond current state of the art.
Dr. Lukaszew comes to DARPA from the College of William and Mary, where she is the Distinguished Virginia Microelectronics Consortium (VMEC) professor of physics. The VMEC consists of industrial partners and academics from the state of Virginia working and/or conducting research on materials of interest in microelectronics and their applications. Previously, she was a faculty member of the physics department at the University of Toledo, Ohio. Early in her career, she was a research scientist at the Argentine National Atomic Commission (CNEA) in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Dr. Lukaszew holds a Licenciatura degree from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina; and a doctorate from Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan. She has received several awards, published more than 100 manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, edited a book on nano-magnetism and holds two patents. Dr. Lukaszew completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, and she is an AVS fellow.
