The Ames Laboratory
Ames, IA 50011-3020Phone 515-294-9636
My research is focused on the theoretical investigation of electronic and magnetic properties of complex novel materials (mostly, but not limited, rare-earth compounds) through first principles methods.
- X-ray magnetic circular dichroism & X-ray magnetic resonant scattering
- Iron-Arsenic based superconductivity
- Structure and magnetic phase transition
- Shape memory and martensitic phase transition
- Hard materials and elastic properties
