Dr. Wunderlich is a internationally recognized Scientist in the field of spintronics research. He co-authored over 90 papers in peer-reviewed journals and holds various patents.

His major research achievements include one of the first experimental observations of the spin Hall effect in 2004. He also discovered a novel magnetoresistance effect, the "Coulomb Blockade" anisotropic magnetoresistance effect (2006), and realized the electrical control of spin-currents in a spin Hall effect transistor (2010).

Dr. Wunderlich joined the Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory in 2001 after receiving his Ph.D. from the Institut d'Electronique Fondamentale in Orsay, France and from the Max Planck Institute for Mikrostrukturphysik in Halle, Germany. He is currently a Chief Research Scientist of Hitachi, and a Fellow of the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology (RCAST), University of Tokyo. Dr. Wunderlich's work has been recognized through several awards including the J.E. Purkyn Fellowship in 2010, and the IEEE-IoP Wohlfarth Prize in 2016.
