Dr Thomas Hicken

Personal profile

I am a Postdoctoral Reasearch Associate working with Professor Jon Goff aiming to harness disorder to tune, tailor, and design classical and quantum spin liquids. I perform a variety of experiments (neutron scattering, muon-spin spectroscopy) at national facilities (ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, TRIUMF), and use density functional theory to understand the results from first-principles.

I completed my PhD at Durham University under the supervision of Professor Tom Lancaster, where I used muon-spin spectroscopy to study topological magnetic states such as skyrmions and solitons.
