Email: checkelsky@mit.edu

Research Interests: Topological states, correlated electrons, magnetism, and superconductivity. We use a combination of materials synthesis and transport/thermodynamic probes to examine systems of interest. DC and Pulsed high magnetic fields play a crucial role in determining properties of the Fermi surface and studying field induced transitions in our studies.

Research Interests: The development and understanding of materials in which strong electronic correlations give rise to theoretically or technologically significant properties. Typically uses low temperatures and high magnetic fields, often combined with molecular chemistry and applied hydrostatic pressure, to understand how the structure of these materials relates to their electronic and magnetic properties.

Research Interests: Investigations of novel magnetic and transport properties of strongly correlated systems, such as novel oxide interfaces, frustrated quantum magnets, and high Tc superconductors. In these systems, the strong correlation drives the interplay between various states of spins and orbitals and gives rise to an amazingly rich diversity of novel phenomena. Current research focuses on the topological quantum materials

Research Interest: He designs and builds experiments to probe the fundamental transport and thermodynamic properties of quantum materials—systems that exhibit non-trivial quantum phenomena. Current examples of his research include the identification of unique phases of matter in topological semimetals, uncovering broken symmetries in high-Tc superconductors using ultrasound, and probing topological superconductivity using the unique experimental technique of resonant ultrasound spectroscopy.
