NSF CAREER Award
Current research interests include studies of new states and phase behaviors across a broad array of quantum materials and harnessing many-body electronic states in functional materials. Specific examples include studies of strongly spin orbit coupled Mott materials, unconventional superconductivity, quantum criticality, quantum magnetism, and correlated topological materials. Experimental techniques include neutron and synchrotron x-ray scattering, bulk electronic properties characterization (e.g. charge transport, heat capacity, magnetic susceptibility, etc.), and new bulk single crystal growth methods.
