Welcome to my webpage!

I am excited to start as an assistant professor in the Department of Physics at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. I am building a research group that uses a combination of density functional theory, group theoretic methods, and model Hamiltonian-based approaches to investigate structurally and electronically complex oxide materials, such as ferroelectrics, charge/orbital-ordered systems, and quantum magnets. A particular focus is on systems where multiple structural and/or electronic order parameters are active, giving rise to novel properties or functionality.
