Elizabeth “Lisa” Pogue

Adviser: Tyrel McQueen
Research Interest: I am investigating a wide range of quantum materials from superconductors to perovskite topological insulator candidates.
PhD: University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, 2018


M Raju

Adviser: Satoru Nakatsuji and Collin Broholm
Research Interest: Developing thin-film heterostructures consisting of magnets, heavy metals, oxides, and superconductors using sputtering techniques. Understanding the emergent quantum phenomenon in low-dimensional heterostructures.
PhD: IIT Delhi, 2013

YW postdoc

Yishu Wang

Adviser: Collin Broholm
Research Interest: I am interested in emergent phenomena in quantum magnetism, particularly when long-range magnetic ordering is suppressed. Experimentally, I use scattering techniques (neutron and x-ray) to probe magnetic ground states and excitations in the energy-momentum space, complemented by transport measurements, time-resolved studies, and high-pressure tuning.
