BioCondensed Matter Physics
My group studies novel ground states and functionality in thin films and heterostructures. We exploit recent advances in atomically precise heteroepitaxy of complex oxides to develop new materials and to probe novel interface phenomena. Many of these phenomena are then incorporated into prototypical device structures. Our recent focus is on strongly correlated materials, especially new spintronic materials, as well as magnetic junction devices and magnetic logic circuits.
Nanoscience and Quantum Engineering
My group exploits atomically precise control of thin film materials synthesis and novel patterning techniques to fabricate nanostructures of correlated electron materials. Through these model systems, we develop a fundamental understanding of their behavior at the nanoscale and incorporate them into prototypical devices.
Professor of Statistics and of Environmental Earth System Science, Emeritus
BioDr. Switzer's research interests are in the development of statistical tools for the environmental sciences. Recent research has focused on the interpretation of environmental monitoring data, design of monitoring networks, detection of time trends in environmental and climatic paramenters, modeling of human exposure to pollutants, statistical evaluation of numerical climate models and error estimation for spatial mapping.
Laura Marie J Symul
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Statistics
BioLaura Symul has obtained her PhD in computational biology from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), in Switzerland, where she has worked on the molecular regulation of the circadian clock. In particular she explored the regulation of rhythmic gene expression and protein translation combining analyses of -omics data with mathematical models describing the regulatory dynamics to infer quantities otherwise not measurable.
Laura Symul has also specialized in the visualization of data and, during her industry experience, has helped companies to take data-driven decisions.
As a postdoctoral fellow, her research focuses on assessing menstrual health, including fertility and cycle-related symptoms occurrence, with self-tracked data from mobile phone apps and devices.
