My research in the nanophotonics field focuses on the theoretical and experimental exploration of metal-based metamaterials and nanophotonic devices that enable efficient transport of light at the nano-scale for energy, information, and optical sensing applications. I perform this work in the research group of Professor Shanhui Fan.
I am also have my own researh group in field of solid-state image sensing. Following my doctoral work on the optics of image sensors in the research group of Professors Brian A. Wandell and Abbas El Gamal, I am particularly interested in light-matter interaction inside micron-size image sensor pixels and the consequences of fundamental light properties on performance as solid state image sensor technology scales.
I have published extensively on my research in both fields (>85 papers including 13 invited and 24 highly-cited) and presented my work at numerous international conferences (including >30 invited talks).
