Nicola Spaldin is Professor for Materials Theory at the ETH Zürich. Her research focuses on identifying and understanding novel kinds of orders and the interaction or competition between them in correlated materials such as transition metal oxides. She is particularly fond of multiferroic materials, with their simultaneous and often coupled ferromagnetism and ferroelectricity. When not in the lab, she can usually be found climbing in the Alps or playing her clarinet, although not at the same time.
