Research Overview:

My research group investigates the basic nature of light-matter interactions and explores ways of using this knowledge to advance the understanding of nature. Our focus lies at the nexus of several traditional physics disciplines: quantum electrodynamics (QED), quantum information science (QIS), condensed matter (CM) physics, and atomic/molecular/optical (AMO) physics. We meld QED and many-body field theory to study photon-exciton-phonon dynamics in both weakly and strongly coupled settings. These investigations always have their roots in theoretical analysis but sometimes lead to the use of high-performance computing to produce quantitative predictions and insights.
