Shoemaker Research Group


Our group is focused on the synthesis and understanding of new inorganic materials: semiconductors, magnets, and materials with complex electronic interactions. We utilize equal parts materials synthesis, characterization, and modeling and simulation. Our offices and labs are located in the Materials Research Laboratory.
