Our research is divided between two closely related topics, Nonlinear and Quantum Plasmonics and Silicon Nanophotonics. An integrating theme of these disciplines is Quantum Metamterials, our reseach in this area being supported by the European Research Council via an ERC Consolidator grant. We are primarily interested in the basic science and computational modeling of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale and the study, design, and potential technological applications of novel photonic nanodevices.
