Sina Mayr received her Bachelor and Master degree in physics from the Technical University of Munich. During her Master studies she specialized on condensed matter physics and worked on an in-​situ polarized neutron reflectometry setup. She joined the Microspectroscopy Group as a PhD student in March 2018.  Sina Mayr's PhD project is performed as a cooperation with the Laboratory for Mesoscopic Systems (NUM).

Sina Mayr focusses on imaging magnetization dynamics and in particular short wavelength spin waves in low-damping ferro- and ferrimagnetic thin films. She is also interested in dynamics of antiferromagetic systems.
