My research interests focus on electronic properties of strongly correlated materials. Using Angle Resolved Photoemisson Spectroscopy I study the electronic structure and electronic interactions of materials such as high temperature superconductors and heavy fermion systems. This technique is particularly useful as it provides momentum resolved information about many quantities such as superconducting gap, Fermi surface, self energy, etc. Such infromation provides essential input for creating new theoretical models of strongly correlated electron systems as well as a tool for their verification. I’m currently constructing laboratory based high precision ARPES system as well work on commissioning the high flux ISU undulator beamline at Synchrotron Radiation Center in Stoughton, WI.

We currently are seeking a graduate student and a postdoc who are interested in our research and would like to join the group.
