My goal is to enable optical computing at the nanoscale, and resonant (high-Q) nanophotonics provide the strong light-matter interactions to make this possible. I am interested in understanding how the symmetry of materials influences interactions with light and how we can design new materials to control these interactions. Specifically, I design dielectric (e.g. silicon, diamond) metasurfaces that strongly confine light and enhance nonlinear optical effects for applications including nanoscale lasing, all-optical isolation, and quantum emission.
