Daniel joined the Materials Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory in March 2012. His research focuses on the exploration of superconducting behavior in pnictide and intermetallic systems exhibiting competing interactions, as well as in narrow gap semiconductors. The aim of this program is to rationally design a homologous series of phases with tunable building blocks to enable the generation of specific compositions with predictable structures. Materials of interest will possess a high degree of structural and compositional freedom and chemical/electronic complexity with which to investigate (i) density-wave instabilities (spin and charge), and their suppression through chemical doping in order to generate superconductivity that may emerge from phase competition, and (ii) how narrow energy band gaps and facile doping properties could lead to a superconducting state.
