Research Summary

I am fascinated by the physics and chemistry of nanometer-scale quantum systems.  These structures are attractive for studying new phenomenology arising from the interactions between small numbers of quantum objects and also present challenges and opportunities in the realm of device design.

My group’s research primarily utilizes the unique imaging, manipulation, and spectroscopy capabilities of low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopes (STMs) to explore the magnetic and electronic properties of quantum nanosystems at the atomic scale.  We also collaborate with other groups to study these systems using additional theoretical and experimental techniques, such as density functional theory (DFT) and x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD).
