Advisory Committee Chair
Nigel Hussey’s research focuses on precision measurements of the transport properties of exotic, low-dimensional metals and superconductors in high magnetic fields. He is credited with the first experimental determination of the full Fermi surface of a high temperature superconductor, and the discovery of the strange metallic state.
