Research Interests

My focus in experimental condensed matter physics involves understanding the surface properties of correlated electron systems. With properties as superconductivity, colossalmagnetoresistance, ferroelectricity, and enhanced catalytic reactions, the immense potential from both academic and technological points of view are evident. The surfaces of such systems offer a unique opportunity to not only investigate the intricate coupling degrees of freedom responsible for such exotic phases but an opportunity to search for new phases. The strive for nanoscale applications, where surface properties dominate, emphasizes the importance of interfaces and reduced dimensionality.
