Current Research Team

We are a team of dedicated individuals with a very high research bar. Our team includes experienced post-doctoral researchers and some of the top graduate students in Canada. We deliberately stay of manageable size (not too small, not too large), ensuring close mentorship, looking to employ only students and researchers with excellent research potential. We enjoy talking and working with both theorists and experimentalists, so we are “street-cred theorists.” Please get in touch if you are interested in joining us or collaborating on the exciting field of light-matter interactions in photonic nanostructures. Most of the graduate students hold awards such as NSERC Fellowships (e.g., CGS) and Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS).
