Our group aims to study and control complex electronic materials -- systems where strong quantum interactions can result in unexpected and novel phenomena, including superconductivity, high thermopower, unconventional magnetism, and metal-insulator transitions. The physical properties of these complex electronic materials will be finely tuned through a variety of approaches including epitaxial strain, chemical doping, and interfacial engineering. These materials will be characterized using various probes of the electronic structure, both in real-space (STM, STEM) and momentum-space (ARPES, x-ray scattering), which will provide valuable input into developing realistic theoretical models for these novel and exciting systems.
