Personal profile

Interests

My research focuses on the functional properties of nanoscale oxide materials, particularly the influence of ferroic domain walls on electrical and thermal transport phenomena. These studies typically involve use of novel scanning probe microscopy techniques, electrical characterisation and low-temperature measurement setups.
