Novel Concepts & Platforms for Sensing and Spectroscopy

Controllable light-matter interactions in artificial structures and materials with the wavelength- and sub-wavelength-scale internal structure leads to important technological innovations in bio(chemical) sensing and spectroscopy. I have applied multi-scale electromagnetic modeling to design and optimize advanced platforms for trace explosives and biological pathogens detection that combine high field enhancement, broadband frequency response, optical trapping and multiplexing capabilities.
