Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are in using nanostructured materials to enhance optical processes. Metallic nanostructures can give rise to confined and strengthened electric near-fields that can boost certain optical processes. For example, my PhD focused on using plasmonic nanostructure to enhance the nonlinear optical process of second harmonic generation. Currently, I am working on creating a fibre based system for detecting surface enhanced Raman scattering of particulate matter air pollutants.
