Research Summary
Main research activities - Quantum phase transitions in strongly correlated quantum systems - Spin dynamics in low-dimensional and frustrated quantum magnets - Bose condensation in magnetic materials and hardcore-boson models - Novel metal-organic quantum spin systems - Interplay of frustration with heavy-electron physics - Spin and lattice dynamics in novel iron-based superconductors My experimental research projects focus on the systematic study of strongly correlated quantum phenomena in low-dimensional spin systems, single-molecule magnets and novel emergent materials. In addition to my primary research tool of neutron spectroscopy, my expertise extends to complementary techniques including X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy, specific heat, magnetic susceptibility, magnetocalorimetry and thermal transport measurements. All of these studies involve extreme conditions, as high magnetic fields and pressures in combination with ultra-low temperatures are required to investigate spin correlations in quantum materials. The results from a number of my projects are of interest to people working particularly in the fields of phase transitions, quantum condensates and other forms of collective quantum behaviour, as well as in several related areas where mesoscopic quantum states are under active exploration for future technological applications.
