Experimentalist and Surface Scientist:
Specialization in Materials Synthesis and Magnetic Characterization:
Molecular Beam Epitaxy -- "engineer" artificial phases of materials, especially highly ordered thin films and superlattices of metal oxides.
Surface and Thin-Film Magnetism -- uses spin-resolved electron, neutron, and x-ray diffraction- based probes to study structural ordering and magnetic coupling at surfaces, in thin-films, and in layered structures.
Current emphasis is on the study of exchange-biasing and half-metallic ferromagnetism in oxidic single- crystalline multilayers such as Fe3O4/NiO and CrO2.
