Research Interests

We perform quantum-enhanced sensings and measurements on quantum condensed matter systems, such as topological supercoductivity, exotic quantum Hall phases, and strongly interacting electrons in various 'engineered' quantum materials.
One of the ultimate goals of our research is to understand and control the quantum many-body interactions to the point where we are able to realize 'designer' quantum (condensed matter) systems.
