We are interested in research on light-matter interactions at the micro/nano scale, with applications in nanophotonics, optical trapping, 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, in order to both advance the scientific understanding and improve the health and life of the masses.
