Principal Research Interests: Superconductivity, Magnetism, Metal-Insulator transitions, Thin Film Growth and Characterization.

Research at Covenant: The physics department has a research effort, due to equipment purchased under a NSF-MRI grant back in 2008-2009. I have been pleased to work with ten students so far on research in thin film materials. I am always looking for students who want to peer into the wonders of God's creation! There is a web page to the lab here.
