Academic interests

I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at Nanostructures and Fucntional Materials (NAFUMA), Department of Chemistry, University of Oslo. Topics include,

  1. Low-temperature magnetic, transport and thermodynamic characterization of Ruddlesden-Popper phases of nickelates and cobaltates
  2. MnA's intermetallics doped with Cr for possible application as a barocaloric material for solid state refrigeration
  3. Studying metal-into-metal inter-diffusion in model systems for making custom bimetallic alloy model catalysts     

Additionally, I support numerous Ph.D., master and undergraduate students on physical property measurements of functional oxide and intermetallic materials.
