2012 - Present: Professor of Physics, Louisiana State University 2009 - 2012: Associate Professor of Physics, Louisiana State University 2000 - 2009: Research Associate/Staff Research Scientist, Oak Ridge National Lab 1997 - 2000: Postdoctoral Research Associate, Pennsylvania State University 1992 - 1997: Research and Teaching Assistant, ETH-Zurich 1991 - 1992: Visiting Scientist, University of Susses/University of Cambridge 1988 - 1991: Staff Research Assistant, Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences
Her research focuses on the development of novel complex materials with intriguing physical properties, such as new phases that exist on the edge of instabilities (unconventional superconductivity, quantum critical phenomena, heavy – Fermion behavior, thermoelectricity etc.). Thus, her research effort is devoted to (1) “science-driven” synthesis and (2) investigation of basic physical properties (charge, spin and heat transport, magnetization, specific heat etc.).
