My research delves at the interface optical physics and communication engineering. I explore fundamental properties of electromagnetic waves and its interaction with matter, to build a foundation for next generation of communication and imaging technologies.
I am looking for motivated students at Ph.D. and masters level to work on a range of challenging research problems in theoretical and experimental domains. I am also offering a series of undergraduate level hardware as well as software development projects. Interested students are encouraged to send an email and schedule a meeting to discuss the details.
