Quantum Materials Synthesis and Physics
Her research focuses on the development of novel quantum materials that exhibit exciting quantum properties. This includes topological materials (superconductors, semimetals, insulators) and quantum magnets (spin glass, spin ice, or with chirality). Her research effort is devoted to (1) “science-driven” synthesis and (2) investigation of basic physical properties (charge, spin and heat transport, magnetization, specific heat etc.).
