Through the study of light at the nano and micro scales, I explore fundamental questions in wave physics and their applications to practical problems.
Some representative examples of my work include mesoscopic correlations in wavefront-shaping experiments, realizations of optical bound states in the continuum (see our review paper on BIC) and exceptional rings in photonic crystal slabs, and a new type of transparent displays based on plasmonic nanostructures; all of them involve both experiment and theory. My publications page has tags on more topics that I work on.
Currently I am a joint postdoc with Douglas Stone and Hui Cao at Yale University. I did my PhD work with Marin Soljačić at MIT between 2012 and 2015 (as a physics graduate student at Harvard), after a short time in Efthimios Kaxiras's group. I received my B.A. in 2010 from Wesleyan University, where I worked with Francis Starr. Here is my brief CV.
