Karl Sandeman joined the staff of the Experimental Solid State Physics (EXSS) group in March 2009. His work in the group aims to improve fundamental understanding of the magnetic states in materials and in particular transitions between different magnetic states. One potential application of this research is in a new, high efficiency, gas-free cooling device: the magnetic refrigerator.

Before joining Imperial College, Karl was in the Device Materials Group of the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge, UK. He was also a Director of Studies in Physics at Churchill College, Cambridge for 5 years.
