I am a Professor at Boston College working in the area of experimental condensed matter physics. Currently I am involved in the investigation of the infrared, optical and magneto-optical properties of novel materials. Both frequency domain and time domain spectroscopic methods are utilized to carry out this task and include Fourier transform and terahertz time domain spectroscopy. I have investigated materials such as high temperature superconductors, Mott-Hubbard insulators, density wave oxides, artificial and metamaterials.
