Welcome to the homepage of Dr. Muhammad Nauman.

I am working as an early-stage program for research innovation and training (ESPRIT) fellow at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA). I currently do research in quantum materials that shows long-range magnetic ordering (i.e. antiferromagnetic), no ordering (quantum spin liquids), and hidden ordering (multipolar). In pursuit of these ordering, I use torque magnetometry, resonant torsion magnetometry, and transport measurements at cryogenic temperatures and high magnetic fields. I either use a direct four-probe method or design micron-sized devices using an in-situ option of plasma focused-ion beam (PFIB) in the scanning electron microscope (SEM) in conjunction with electron back-scattered diffraction (EBSD) and sputtering. (visit Research Activities, Research Publications, or Research Tools & Techniques for details).

Apart from research, I have a broad range of teaching experience from individual tutoring to professional mentoring and teaching high school, graduate, and undergraduate-level courses. I have taught at Qurtuba college Peshawar, global college Rawalpindi, University of wah Pakistan, and recently at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA). (visit the Experience page for details).

I take pleasure in educating people by writing articles on different educational issues of Pakistan in notable national and international newspapers including but not limited to The Daily Times, The Korea Times, Daily ummat, etc. I keep myself updated with new scientific discoveries and breakthroughs in my field and share those in my articles and blogs in a simple way with the common public at the level of a common man (visit Articles and Blogs for details).
