My research focuses on the synthesis, discovery, and analysis of new quantum materials, with a vision of their current and future utility. More specifically, my research develops new synthetic methodologies and uses them to drive the discovery of new phenomena through the design and synthesis of new materials. Specific topics of interest include superconductors, quantum spin liquids, and topological materials, and how they can be applied to quantum computing and related applications.
