Experimental scholarship in functional materials is our primary focus. Problems of interest center around controlled synthesis; investigating effects of microstructure, interfaces and point defects in electronic and ionic transport. The research is collaborative and brings together scientists from condensed matter physics, computational sciences, physical chemistry, and electrical engineering.

We are presently focused on:

  • Organismic materials: Evolutionary biology inspired adaptive matter
  • Strongly correlated semiconductors for artificial intelligence
  • Adaptive electromagnetic matter
