Research Interests

1. Physics of many correlated electron system under extreme physical conditions, i.e., high magnetic fields, high pressure, and low temperature environment.
2. Single crystal growth and physical properties of intermetallic and oxide materials covering emergent superconductors, topological materials, and magnetic oxides.
3. Optical properties of strongly correlated materials
4. Thermal/electronic transport & magnetic properties of transition metal oxides
