We are a condensed matter research group located in Birge Hall on the UC Berkeley campus. Using scanning probe microscopy, we investigate the structural, electronic, and magnetic properties of nanostructures and 2-dimensional materials. Current fields of research include 2D transition metal dichalcogenides, carbon nanostructures, photovoltaics, magnetic nanostructures, and molecular machines.
