Research Interests
My research area is experimental solid-state physics, materials physics, and electronic and photonics device physics. I am interested in quantum effects in novel materials, nanomaterials, and devices, especially the response to microwave through terahertz electromagnetic fields. In my lab we measure basic linear electrodynamic properties, such as AC conductance and dielectric function, as well as non-linear response such as frequency conversion, from MHz to THz and at cryogenic temperatures and high magnetic fields.
