Sabine M Neumayer

Research & Development Associate

Sabine M. Neumayer joined ORNL in 2018 as a postdoctoral researcher in the Functional Atomic Force Microscopy Group at the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences. She became a R&D associate scientist in the group in 2021. Her research focus is on micro- and nanoscale functional properties of a wide range of materials for neuromorphic systems, microelectronics, information storage and energy applications. She is an expert in scanning probe microscopy techniques for local electronic, dielectric, ionic, electromechanical and mechanical characterization of functional materials.

Sabine M. Neumayer received her PhD in Physics from University College Dublin (Ireland) in 2016 and holds BSc and MSc degrees in Technical Physics from Graz University of Technology (Austria).
