Josephine is a postdoctoral fellow at the Australian National University. She is currently working on the instrumentation for a remote sensing project. The project aims to demonstrate the improved functionality of satellite imaging using metasurfaces. Josephine completed her PhD in optical aberration characterisation for astronomical instrumentation and has since refocused her research on the rapidly expanding field of metasurfaces. She is particularly interested in manipulating the optical domain of imaging systems; from both a biological and artificial perspective.

Current Projects
