Research Interests

My research interest lies within emergent phenomena in strongly correlated electron systems. Quantum criticality and novel ground state in superconductor, multiferroics, and intermetallic compounds are subject I have worked on. Most of my research have been done and focused on bulk single crystals. Recently, using alternative technique of atomic force microscope, which are operated at cryogenic temperature as well as room temperature, I’m studying topological phenomena in the bulk single crystal of the strongly correlated electron system.
