I am a Ph.D. student working in HiPSEC under Dr. Andrew Cornelius. My recent work is focused primarily on high pressure X-ray absorption spectroscopy of intermediate-valence compounds. Together with Dr. Farzana Nasreen, I have been doing partial florescence yield and X-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy measurements at HPCAT and the Magnetic Materials Group in sectors 16 and 4, respectively, of the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory. We have been studying intermetallic and organometallic compounds containing Cerium, Ytterbium, and Uranium at high pressure and low temperature. I have also worked on high pressure X-ray diffraction, resistivity, and low temperature magnetic measurements of unconventional superconductors under Dr. Ravhi Kumar. My master’s program work was done on the magnetic properties of geometrically-frustrated materials.
