There are currently no positions open.

My current research interests are in Biophotonics and closely related Photonics (the science of light). In particular, my efforts are focused on development of advanced laser sources and optical laser technologies for high-resolution imaging and spectroscopy of biological and other systems. The main areas of expertise are in basic science and engineering of diode-pumped solid-state lasers, nonlinear optics, label-free laser microscopy, and laser spectroscopy.
