Dr. Jason T. Haraldsen


Theoretical Condensed Matter Physicist

I am a theoretical and computational condensed matter physicist examines the magnetic and electronic properties for complex materials as well as their device applications. These materials include complex oxide heterostructures, topological systems, and multifunctional materials. The goal of my research is to enhance our understanding of complex interactions that can lead to spintronic and quantum computational devices. Furthermore, I also work on understanding the possible device applications for biological materials and DNA sequencing.
