As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at TMOS, I study plasmon-phonon interactions of graphene with polar dielectric metasurfaces in infrared optical systems and apply the understanding of physics to the design of infrared devices.

I have 10 years of experience in plasmonics and photonics research and teaching electromagnetics and mathematics. I worked on design and analysis of solar absorber, waveguide integrated plasmonic sensor, nanoparticle lens, spatial filter and wearable medical sensor operating from RF to THz, infrared and optics.

My love of equations and experience in electromagnetics and optics modelling software, python and Matlab programming, allows me to use analytical and numerical methods for design and optimisation of miniaturised and tunable infrared devices, such as filters, lenses, absorbers and sensors, with further spectroscopic characterisation and data analysis of their performance.

I also won teaching and speaker awards and use my skills to explain complex scientific concepts in simple form and train future professionals.
