I am currently looking for highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students interested in photonics research,  do not hesitate to contact me.


Development of advanced photonic sensing components and systems:

  • Simulation, design, fabrication, and characterization of novel multi-functional fiber Bragg grating sensors and systems
  • Fiber-optic based DNA amplification and detection
  • All-fiber Brillouin spectroscopy systems
  • Fiber and free space Fabry-Perot based optical spectrum analyzers
  • Integration of tilted fiber Bragg gratings into microfluidic lab-on-chips
  • Development with collaborators of novel nanoparticle coatings and functionalizations
  • Self-monitoring fiber grating-based micro-actuators


Biomedical devices, environment monitoring, and fundamental research:

  • Point-of-care diagnostic and genetic testing for early detection of diseases and personalized medicine
  • Environmental sensing (air, soil, and water quality monitoring)
  • Acceleration of biomechanical and magnonic research
