Grace Pan has joined our group as an NSF Graduate Research Fellow! Grace completed her B.S. in physics at Yale University where she worked in the group of Judy Cha on understanding topological crystalline insulators and transition metal dichalcogenide devices. She also was a visiting student researcher in the group of David Goldhaber-Gordon at Stanford University. Grace was a recipient of the Barry Goldwater Scholarship for her research. Welcome Grace!

Our collaborative NSF-MRI grant was funded. This award will support the acquisition of an aberration-corrected low energy electron microscope to be housed in Harvard's CNS facility. We look forward to using the high-resolution LEEM/PEEM to probe the surfaces of our MBE-grown films.

Dr. Qi Song has joined our group as a postdoctoral scholar! Qi recently completed her PhD in physics at Fudan University in the group of Donglai Feng during which time she was also a visiting scholar at MIT. Qi’s PhD studies used MBE and ARPES to study superconducting FeSe on oxide templates as well as to investigate electron gases at oxide interfaces. She holds a B.S. in physics from Tongji University. Welcome Qi!

Dr. Charles Brooks has joined our group as a research associate! Charles was previously a postdoctoral scholar at Cornell University in the group of Darrell Schlom where he explored how defects and interfaces could tune the properties of a number of complex oxide systems grown by MBE. He holds a B.S. in Physics and Materials Science from the University of Maryland and a PhD in Materials Science from Penn State University. Welcome Charles!

Julia was named a "Moore Fellow in Materials Synthesis." This grant will further support our efforts to design, synthesize and probe novel oxide quantum materials. Thank you very much to the Emergent Phenomena in Quantum Systems Initiative at the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation for their support of our work!

Julia was awarded the 2017 Oxide Electronics Prize for Excellency in Research.
She was recognized for "for utilizing analytic electron microscopy to understand the connection between atomic structure and ferroelectricity in geometric ferroelectrics, using this new knowledge to engineer superior materials – in particular for creating the world’s highest temperature ferrimagnetic ferroelectric using atomically engineered ferroic layers."
