Research Interests

My research is focused on using synchrotron based X-ray techniques to explore collective electronic behavior and order in soft matter and correlated electron systems via ARPES, XAS and RSXS. Namely structural ordered, diblock copolymers systems and strongly correlated systems such as heavy fermions, high Tc superconductor and metal-insulator transitions.
