Research areas

My research interests have evolved from f-electron systems to complex magnetic oxides, the recurring themes being the study of correlated electron materials and the use of neutron scattering methods. I have been investigating a wide range of perovskite systems, mainly cobaltites and manganites. These transition metals oxides have a very diverse range of physical properties from a wide variety of magnetic orderings to metal-insulator transitions, spin-state transitions.
