Samra Husremović will be a postdoctoral fellow in the group of professor Xavier Roy at Columbia University. Husremović holds a B.S. degree from Bates College and will graduate with a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley under the mentorship of professor Kwabena Bediako. Husremović’s research sits at the liminal space between chemistry, physics and engineering, with a focus on manipulating emergent physics in atomically thin crystals through targeted synthetic modifications. Her overarching goal is to achieve quantum states relevant to computing applications.

During her doctoral studies, she developed a new platform of ultrathin magnets using intercalation and tailored charge density wave systems to exhibit multistate switching. In her postdoctoral work, she will continue using precise chemical modifications to unlock tailored physical properties, expanding her research scope to encompass topological materials.
