Our research is mainly focused on light-matter interactions at the micro/nano scale, with applications in nanophotonics, optical trapping, and optofluidics. We are particularly interested in developing tools based on radiation pressure and applying these tools to tackle difficult problems at the intersection of various disciplines. The goal of our research is, from an engineering point of view, to advance scientific understanding of optical and biophysics and to improve the life of the masses.
