Robbyn Trappen

Postdoctoral Researcher

Experimental Condensed Matter and Materials Physics | Li Group


Robbyn Trappen received his PhD from West Virginia University in 2019 in condensed matter physics with a focus on thin film growth and X-ray spectroscopies of magnetic oxides. He worked as a postdoc for the University of Waterloo, Institute for Quantum Computing from 2020-2021 in the topic of quantum annealing. He is currently a postdoc in Prof. Lian Li's group. His research interests include the study and growth of topological quantum materials, magnetic thin films, superconductivity, strongly correlated electronic systems, and fractals and chaotic systems.
