Research and Teaching Interests

My research focuses on the exotic orders emerging from the interplay between lattice, charge, spin and orbital degrees of freedom at interfaces of van der Waals and molecular-beam-epitaxy heterostructures. My primary experimental techniques include nonlinear optical spectroscopy and synchrotron-based photoemission spectroscopy/microscopy.
