Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am  Associate Team Leader in the Photonic Materials and Devices group at the Institute of Photonics of the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland). My overarching aims are:
➢    To conduct excellent, collaborative research in Photonics and enable technologies for addressing grand challenges and delivering impact
➢    To develop the experts of the future through research

My research in Photonics at the interface of Nanotechnology and Life Sciences contributes:
➢    To further the scientific knowledge of photonic devices and materials including novel colloidal semiconductors and nanomaterials
➢    To develop functional device technologies and instrumentation for healthcare, science, optical communications and emerging applications

My current research themes include:
•    Colloidal quantum dots and perovskites color converters for LEDs and lasers
•    Colloidal semiconductor lasers
•    DNA photonics for sensing
•    Hybrid, mechanically-flexible sources for phototherapy

My interests also cover epitaxial inorganic semiconductor structures and devices, microchip semiconductor disk lasers and optical fibre-based devices.
