    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 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: 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.

    Research Interest: The leach lab at the University of Georgia focuses its research activities on the determination of molecular structure by FTMS in the context of environmental health with emphasis areas ranging from the interaction of emerging contaminants with natural organic matter and biota in wetland ecosystems to how the metabolic profile of organisms is affected by environmental exposures. The primary goal of these wide-ranging activities is to enable a more detailed understanding of environmental interactions and make a positive impact on public health.
