Degree:

PhD (McGill University)

Research Interests:

We have broad research interests in silicon photonics, nanophotonics, photonic integrated circuits, and neuromorphic computing. Our research follows an interdisciplinary approach to address grand engineering challenges with fundamental physical insights. Recently, we have been designing and building programmable nanophotonic processors with applications to scientific computing (deep learning and nonlinear programming) and the study of complex systems.
