    Research Interests: I study emergent quantum phenomena in 2D van der Waals materials and heterostructures. I am particularly interested in using interfacial and proximity effects to probe, control and engineer quantum phases in 2D materials, such as fractional quantum Hall effect, superfluidity, superconductivity, and topological ferromagnetism. For example, my work on graphene double-layer structure, performed mostly at the national high magnetic field lab, has led to the experimental realization of the fractional quantum Hall effect with 2-component correlation, as well as excitonic condensate.

    Research Interests: I am broadly interested in the interface between condensed matter physics and quantum information science (QIS). My research group works on hybrid systems comprised of trapped electrons on superfluid helium, superconducting quantum bits (qubits), color-center defects in diamond, quantum acoustic systems based on piezoelectric surface acoustic waves (SAW), and low-dimensional electron systems in semiconductors.

    Research Interests: The goal of my research group is to explore novel quantum phenomena in ultrathin film, layered materials. We do this by focusing on controlling the growth, thin film stacking, and device fabrication processes, allowing for consistent, ultrahigh quality 2D heterostructure devices. Research involves understanding of single crystal synthesis, nanofabrication processes, and magnetotransport studies at temperatures down to 20 mK.

    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 tunnelling 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 tunnelling microscopy/spectroscopy of 2D materials.
