Tatiana Brinzari, a recent Ph. D. graduate from Professor Musfeldt’s group, published two papers Quantum critical transition amplifies magnetoelastic coupling in Mn[N(CN)2]2 and Electron-phonon and magnetoelastic interactions in ferromagnetic Co[N(CN)2]2 in Phys. Rev. Lett (PRL) that emanate from her thesis work.
Brinzari grew up in Chisinau, Moldova and received her undergraduate degree of inorganic chemistry from Moldova State University (MSU) in 2005. Upon obtaining her master’s degree in chemistry from MSU, Tatiana joined Dr. Musfeldt’s group in 2007. Since then, her research focused on magneto-optical spectroscopy of multifunctional molecule-based materials and novel oxides. Brinzari published a dozen papers in journals such as PRL, Inorg. Chem, and Phys. Rev. B during her time at UT.
Professor Musfeldt, Brinzari’s mentor, enjoyed working with her. “Tanea is a very gifted young lady, and it has been my pleasure to work with her during her PhD. These publications in PRL are very much deserved.” said Musfeldt.
Graduated with a Ph.D. degree last December, Brinzari is now a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Physics and Chemistry at the University of Florida, Gainesville.
