Research Interests

Main research areas: (a) Quantum physics, emphasizing quantum information science and quantum optics, and (b) radiators in photonic crystals.

For area (a), the main projects are (i) assessing the resources and requirements for quantum information protocols, processes for generating and consuming the resources, and interrelationships between these resources and (ii) designing and implementing feasible quantum information protocols.

Area (b) involves collaboration with engineers to exploit the electromagnetic bandgap of photonic crystals for designing advanced antennas.
