I’m a laser spectroscopist, with particular interest in developing new ultrafast measurement techniques. My current research interests are focused on fabricating a biomimetic material based on the photonic structures in chameleon (Furcifer pardalis) tissues, developing a novel pulse-shaping technique for femtosecond lasers, twisted light spectroscopy, semiconductor spectroscopy, and laser micromachining – as well as a number of smaller fun projects. My previous work has included the study of self-assembled photonic structures, molecular Bose-Einstein condensates, multidimensional Fourier transform femtosecond spectroscopy of exciton gases, negative index of refraction metamaterials, multidimensional spectroscopy of artificial photosynthetic proteins, and shell structures in BECs.
