Dr. Wiebe is a physical chemist from the University of Winnipeg. Dr. Wiebe completed his undergrad at the University of Winnipeg in 1996, and then continued on to his Masters and PhD at McMaster University. He is a former faculty member of Florida State University and has now returned to the University of Winnipeg to continue his research. His research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of geometrically frustrated materials that cannot order conventionally, and can display interesting characteristics at low temperature, where new states of magnetism can arise. Dr. Wiebe is also interested in the study of high temperature superconductors and materials that exhibit ordering phenomena that include orbital degrees of freedom. These materials are interesting not only from a theoretical perspective but are also of importance in various technological devices.
