I am excited to start as an assistant professor in the physics department at the University of California Davis, and I am building a lab focused on the growth and study of novel quantum materials, particularly unconventional and high temperature superconductors, correlated electron systems, topological materials, and energy materials.  This lab will use both angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and time resolved techniques for elucidating the electronic structure and dynamics of quantum materials such as unconventional superconductors, materials with topological surface state, and 2D materials.   These advanced materials hold promise for revealing new emergent phenomena, elucidating interactions in many body systems, and enabling tomorrow’s electronics and energy resources.
