Research Themes

Energy Efficiency: Superconductors for energy efficient applications

Materials and Chemistry: Study and materials design of novel superconductors


Research Interests

Novel Superconductors:
My research involves the creation and study of interesting quantum materials - often under extreme conditions such as very high magnetic and electric fields, enormous pressures, and very low temperatures - with a view to discovering unusual phases of matter. Among these are the family of superconductors - which have the exciting property of transporting electricity with no energy loss - and hence hold great promise for energy saving applications. One of my research programmes is to create a new generation of superconductors that operate at accessible temperatures, thus providing energy transmission and storage solutions of the future.
