Experimental study of the electric properties of low dimensional and nano systems, focusing on superconducting and ferromagneting materials. The systems under study include ultrathin films, nanowires, quantum dots, tunnel junctions and nanoparticles. The various research projects deal with the effect of   geometry, size and disorder on the electric and magnetic properties of these systems.

Basic and applied research of properties of magnetic conductors (spintronics). The basic research includes the study of the behavior of the components of the transport tensor of ceramic magnetic conductors (perovskites), phenomena related to the interaction between spin-polarized current and the magnetization of the compound, and magnetization reversal in magnetic nanoparticles with emphasis on the detection of macroscopic quantum tunneling. The applied research includes the development of magnetic memory and magnetic sensors based of the group patents.

Our work focuses on the cellular copper cycle. The knowledge gained on the copper cycle in eukaryotic and prokaryotic systems is then used to develop new biomarkers and therapeutic agents that are dependent on the copper cycle. We believe that a basic understanding on the chemical and biological system is essential for developing the next generation of biomarkers and therapeutic compounds that will be adopted in the clinic.

The main biophysical tool that is used in our lab is continuous wave (CW) and pulsed EPR spectroscopy. The power of EPR lies in its sensitivity to both atomic level changes and nanoscale fluctuations. EPR can characterize states such as the redox state and ligand geometry to determine the protein’s different functional states, as well as to provide information on the cell’s dynamics. The data collected by the EPR experiments is complemented by various other biophysical and biochemical approaches, as well as computational methods, such as CD, NMR, run-off transcription assays, ultra-centrifuge experiments, cell microscopy experiments, 64Cu(II) cell experiments, and QM/MM-MD simulations, in order to provide a complete picture of the cellular copper cycle in eukaryotic and prokaryotic systems.

Theory of strongly correlated electron systems, collective behavior in quantum phases and quantum criticality. In particular, my research interests focus on transport phenomena in low-dimensional systems: superconductivity in thin films and wires; superconductor-insulator transitions; spin, charge and heat transport in low-dimensional magnetic systems; quantum Hall effect in graphene.
