Research InterestsMy research is in experimental condensed matter physics investigating strongly correlated electron systems. Much of my research focuses on fundamental studies to determine the mechanisms of unconventional superconductivity by planar tunneling and point contact electron spectroscopies, and on developing methods for predictive design of new families of superconducting materials. In our quest for these long-term goals, we perform spectroscopic studies of the electronic structure of heavy fermions, topological insulators and superconductors, and other novel materials that show strong electronic correlations. We also incorporate studies of superconducting proximity effects on novel normal-state and superconducting materials.
