We work in a richly interdisciplinary environment that combines polymer chemistry, photochemistry, optical physics, photonics and materials engineering. Our research examines light induced perturbations and different forms of nonlinear light waves in a range of photoresponsive systems with a focus on soft matter.


We harness these diverse behaviours to develop functional polymer microstructures, 3-D waveguide architectures for light capture and light shaping, photoresponsive films, bio-inspired optics, 3-D printing techniques, all-optical encoding, and new ways to micro-manipulate optical fields.
