Research Interests

My research interest lies in experimental condensed matter physics; and specifically, in understanding the behavior of electrons in unconventional materials, such as topological quantum matters and strongly correlated systems. I’m also interested in developing advanced instrumentation that will drive the exploration of critical information on condensed matter systems with new degrees of freedom.

Other Interests

Flight: single engine airplane pilot
Sports: table tennis, badminton, rafting, swimming
Radio controlled models
