Anthony Ferri was born in Lens (France) in 1982. He received his Ph.D degree in Materials Sciences from University of Artois in 2008 under the supervision of Pr. R. Desfeux. He studied the local electrical properties of oxide ferroelectric thin films by using piezoresponse force microscopy. As a post-doctoral position, he then spent one year (2008-2009) at the “Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials” (University of Groningen, The Netherlands) under the supervision of Prs. T. Palstra and B. Noheda. He synthesized BiFeO3 multiferroic thin films and he investigated both the structural and physical properties of these compounds. In 2009, he was promoted “Maître de Conférences” at the University of Artois and joined the UCCS lab. His work is focused on the investigation of the structural, morphology, electrical (piezo-/ferroelectricity, conductivity) and magnetic properties of oxide piezo-/ferroelectric, ferromagnetic and multiferroic materials on the micro- and nanoscale. He mainly uses scanning probe microscopy techniques (AFM, PFM, C-AFM, KFM, MFM) for the nanoscale studies of thin films, superlattices and nanoislands.
