Research Interests

All of my research lies in the area of theoretical condensed-matter physics and nonlinear and quantum optics. This work ranges from pure to applied physics and often involves collaboration with experimentalists. My research is supported by Queen’s University, NSERC and Compute Canada. The following is a brief overview of some of my current research interests:

  • Quantum optics and cavity QED in ring resonators and photonic crystals
  • Nonlinear quantum optics in coupled photonic crystal cavities
  • Generation of multimode squeezed states on chip
  • The nonlinear response of graphene to intense THz fields
  • The effects of impurities, strain and phonons on the linear and nonlinear response of 2D materials
