Email: Joseph Checkelsky

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 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.
