Our research interests are multi-disciplinary and encompass a range of structural, dynamic, magnetic, and electronic problems in contemporary materials science, straddling condensed matter physics and chemistry and impact on diverse sectors of science and technology, both via materials with new figures of merit for near-term applications and by generating new properties which challenge accepted understanding.

We use core chemical approaches to access unusual structures and electronic, conducting, and magnetic ground states and probe the physics in key proof-of-concept materials, including mixed valency systems, porous framework materials, low-dimensional magnetic solids and photo-switchable molecular magnets, intermetallic Kondo insulators, superconducting oxides, borides, and pnictides, carbon nanotubes, fullerenes and heterofullerenes, and their superconducting and ferromagnetic derivatives.
