Research Interests: I am an experimentalist of Condensed Matter Physics. The focus of my research interest is on strongly correlated electronic systems including unconventional superconductivity, magnetism, heavy-fermion materials, quantum phase transition and quantum critical point, and topological materials. In my lab, we use electrical/thermal transport, magnetic and thermodynamic properties measurements, in combination with all kinds of quantum controlling like physical pressure, chemical doping, high magnetic field, strain to tune the physical properties. We also do nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to study spin dynamics of these materials.
