Research Areas

Research Interests

Our research is focused on crystal growth, structure (X-ray and neutron), and characterization (electrical, magnetic, transport) of intermetallics and oxides for energy applications, including:

  1. Highly correlated electronic materials
  2. Magnetic frustrated materials
  3. Search and discovery of intermetallics with low thermal conductivity
