Research interests

My research interest are strongly correlated Landau-Fermi liquids, unconventional metals and superconductors at extreme conditions.

During my PhD, I investigated the emergence of new quantum phases in helium-3 films in the vicinity of the density driven Mott-transition by means of low-frequency SQUID NMR at microkelvin temperatures. Helium-3 films are an ideal model system for strongly correlated behaviour and low-dimensional magnetism due to their lack of lattice defects and impurities.

Additionally, I was involved in the developement of a new highly coherent graphitic substrate for the study of adsorbed novel gases and organic molecules. As part of this work I investigated the electrical transport and magnetic properties of single crystalline and exfoliated graphites.

Since February 2015 I am part of the unconventional metals and superconductivity group, led by Elena Hassinger, at the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids Dresden (Germany). Here I study the bandstructure and Fermi surface topology of unconventional metals and superconductors by means of quantum oscillations at high magnetic fields, low temperatures and pressure.
