We are broadly interested in oxide quantum materials and heterostructures, with a significant focus on synthesis of novel complex oxide materials, oxide interface physics, low-dimensional superconductivity, 2D oxide nanomembranes, and quantum materials by design. We leverage a combined approach of atomic-scale fabrication, thin-film epitaxy and kinetic-based synthetic methods, with the aim to prepare novel phases of complex oxides. We specialize in growing materials by the advanced pulsed laser deposition technique and studying their physical properties by transport means.

We perform highly localized spectroscopic measurements (EELS) to reveal a number of key differences between the superconducting cuprates and nickelates, particularly with regard to the hybridization between the O and metal (Cu or Ni) orbitals.
