Dr. Checkelsky is an Assistant Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His research group is devoted to the synthesis and measurement of novel quantum materials, including single crystal materials in both bulk and thin film form. He has made significant contributions to the study of topological electronic materials along with their interaction with magnetism. His laboratory is actively pursuing realizations of correlated electronic behavior in topologically non-trivial systems. Dr. Checkelsky has won the National Science Foundation CAREER award and was selected as a Bose Research Fellow. He received a PhD from Princeton University and was previously a faculty member at the University of Tokyo.
