Our research focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of inorganic compounds with novel magnetic and electronic properties, for the purposes of bettering our understanding and control of emergent electronic behavior in quantum materials. Our lab has a strong emphasis on discovering new materials where we combine chemistry and physics principles to achieve desired properties. We then use detailed structural, thermodynamic and transport measurements to study the physical properties of these new materials, often in single crystalline form. Current fields of interest include low-dimensional magnetism, topological materials, strongly correlated phenomena and superconductivity.
