Pegor Aynajian joined Binghamton University's Department of Physics as an Assistant Professor in the fall of 2013. He received his Ph.D. in physics in 2009 from the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in conjunction with the University of Stuttgart, Germany. His Ph.D. research was focused on the study of electron-phonon interaction in conventional and unconventional superconductors using neutron resonance spin-echo and triple-axis spectroscopy. In 2009, he joined the Physics Department of Princeton University as a MRSEC postdoctoral fellow to pursue research on unconventional superconductivity and strongly correlated electron systems using scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy.
physics of strongly correlated electrons systems, where electronic properties hinge on the collective interplay between charge, spin, and orbital degrees of freedom. In many of these material systems, electronic correlations are tuned by chemical doping
