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: Her effort is devoted to (1) the development of new quantum materials with intriguing properties (superconductivity, quantum magnetism, nontrivial topology, thermoelectrics, and multiferroics etc.), (2) the investigation of physical properties: charge, spin and heat transportation, magnetization, specific heat, microscopic (magnetic force microscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy, transmission electron microscopy), and spectroscopic (angle-resolved photoemission, and neutron scattering) measurements.

Research interests: My research group studies unconventional phases of matter with a particular focus on magnetic frustration. We aim to understand non-trivial physical phenomena driven by diverse spin states, by investigating thermodynamic and transport characteristics under various extreme conditions.
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.
Research Interests: Sheng Ran’s research aims to realize and understand exotic states of quantum materials, using combined techniques of bulk crystal synthesis, electric and thermal transport measurements under extreme temperature, pressure and magnetic field conditions, and neutron and high energy X-ray scattering.
