Rakshit Jain

Webb@KIC Grad Fellow (2023-2024)

Pronouns: he/him

I am a fifth year graduate student working with Dan Ralph.


My research background is in spin and magnetism in topological quantum materials and antiferromagnets. I am currently working on realizing strong proximity effects in topological insulator-2D magnet heterostructures to realize novel states such as the quantum Anomalous Hall insulator and the half-quantized state.
