    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: I am interested in 2D materials and have done a majority of my research on graphene and graphene/boron nitride moire superlattices in the presence of large magnetic fields. Recently, I have been working on 2D transition-metal dichalogenide (TMD) superconductors, and the role that broken inversion symmetry and spin-orbit coupling play in their behavior in large magnetic fields. I am also interested in magnetic 2D materials and the way that proximity effects between magnetic materials and graphene can potentially lead to interesting topological states of matter.

    Research Interests: Our research group is aimed at understanding correlated electron systems on the microscale, with an emphasis on their behavior in strong magnetic fields. We employ Focused Ion Beam microstructuring to prepare mesoscale structures from single crystals of strongly correlated materials, with a focus on pnictide high-temperature superconductors, heavy fermion systems, unconventional low-temperature superconductors and topological metals. The typical dimensions of the crystalline structures range between 50micron and 100nm, and thus allow to study the interplay between the finite size and the relevant physical length scale of the material, such as a coherence length or domain size. We are also developing new experimental techniques in high magnetic fields based on microstructures, and are regular users of both the dc- and pulsed field facility.

    Research Interests: Strongly correlated physics in two-dimensional (2D) materials such as graphene, multilayers of graphene, and black phosphorus. Recently, I have been working on planar tunneling spectroscopy of 2D materials at low-temperatures and ultra-high magnetic fields. I am interested in performing direct measurements of Landau levels in 2D materials as electron-electron interactions emerge. I am also interested in scanning tunneling microscopy/spectroscopy of 2D materials.
