My research

I study light-matter interaction on an attosecond (1 as = 10-18 s) timescale with a focus on strong-fields in condensed matter.

Attosecond science is uniquely capable of resolving the rapid motion of electrons.

Studying attosecond electron motion in condensed matter will have a major impact in light-matter interactions, namely quantum and nonlinear optics, photonics, electro-optics, condensed matter physics, and materials science.

Developing technologies that have unprecedented sensitivity to attosecond electronic motion in external electric fields have potential applications not only for next-generation electronics, electrical engineering, and photonics, but also for molecular detection, standoff detection, and biosensing.
