Quantum materials defy our textbook understanding of solid state physics via strong electron-electron interactions, unpredicted emergent electronic phases, or manifesting novel properties via long-range quantum entanglement instead of symmetry breaking.  Some of the material systems I plan on investigating include:

  • Cuprate high temperature superconductors
  • Iron-based high temperature superconductors
  • Heavy fermion materials
  • Topological insulators
  • Dirac and Weyl semimetals
