People » Madhab Neupane

Dr. Neupane received his Ph.D. in Physics from Boston College, Boston, MA in 2010. He spent four years (2011-2014) as a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University, Princeton, NJ and one year (2015-2016) as a Director’s Fellow at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM. He joined UCF in 2016 where he is currently an Assistant Professor.


Dr. Neupane’s research focuses on the electronic and spin properties of new quantum materials such as correlated topological insulators, three dimensional Dirac, Weyl and nodal semimetals, topological Kondo insulators, topological crystalline insulators, and two-dimensional materials investigated using angle-, spin- and time-resolved photoemission techniques. In particular, he utilizes angle-, spin- and time-resolved photoemission measurement techniques to reveal the interesting electronic and spin properties, as well as the momentum resolved dynamical properties of bulk and symmetry-protected surface properties of these quantum materials.
