- About Me -

My Ph.D. work was on the study of heavy fermion materials using the de-Haas van Alphen (dHvA) effect at very low temperatures and high magnetic fields in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana StateUniversity (LSU) and graduated with a Ph. D. in physics in 2000. For the next three years, I worked as a postdoctoral research associate and as a Research Scientist at the National Center for PhysicalAcoustics (NCPA) at The University of Mississippi in Oxford, MS working on Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy (RUS) at low temperatures and high magnetic fields. I joined the department of Physics and Astronomy at the College of Charleston in 2003.


- Research -

My research interest is devoted to the study of new and novel nanomaterials using ultrasonics, such as Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy (RUS), Pulse-Echo (PE), magnetic (dHvA), and transport measurement techniques. My lab is in room 220 JC Long.

Students currently working in the Solid State Lab are:
Matt Palumbo -- Studying the mechanical and electrical properties of Graphene
Canyon Barry -- Investigating the structure and mechanical properties of Graphene via nanoindentation and AFM
Collin Weiwadel -- Schlieren Imaging of Acoustic Field
James Taylor -- Characterization of the mechanical properties of Lithium Niobate
