Dr. Mandrus runs a lab in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Tennessee and also established the Correlated Electron Materials Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Dr. Mandrus uses the experimental tools of synthesis and crystal growth of new quantum materials to address cutting-edge issues in materials physics, and he has made significant contributions in the areas of unconventional superconductors (both cuprate and iron-based), thermoelectric materials, Kondo insulators, and novel charge-ordering systems. His lab is also interested in chiral ferromagnets and atomically thin magnetic chalcogenides. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and currently serves on the National Research Councils Condensed Matter and Materials Research Committee. Dr. Mandrus earned his PhD from Stony Brook University.
