Zhiming Darren Tan

Graduate Student in Theoretical Physics

My research interests are in statistical physics and condensed matter. In particular, I am interested in geometrically frustrated magnets.

Together with my advisor, John Chalker, I am studying a new class of frustrated magnets, realised by the network of cobalt spins in compounds such as YBaCo4O7.

I have a deep interest in science education, especially in strengthening the interaction between research and education. See link for more details.

I am also known as the Science Samurai - slicing into the heart of science!
