Daniel Walkup is a UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanoscale Processes and Measurements Group in the Nanoscale Device Characterization Division. He received a B.A. in Physics from Boston University and a Ph.D. in Physics from Boston College. His doctoral research focused on using scanning tunneling microscopy to investigate the electronic structure of materials with strong spin-orbit coupling, including topological insulators and Iridium oxides, in the presence of doping or local strain. Daniel is working with Joseph Stroscio using scanning tunneling microscopy to study the electronic properties of graphene devices at low temperature and in the presence of high magnetic fields.
