Research interests

Daniel's research interests lie primarily in the field of Quantum Optics, Nanophotonics, and Nanomanufacturing techniques. He is an expert in nanofabrication (3D additive nanomanufacturing and focused ion beam etching), modelling (Finite-Difference Time-Domain, and plane-wave expansion methods) and characterisation (in-house built Fourier imaging spectroscopy, and confocal microscopy). His area right now has focused on the artificially structured electromagnetic materials for efficient control of light-matter interactions and the development of advanced optoelectronic devices for practical applications (e.g., sensing, light trapping, and solar energy harvesting, and quantum technology, etc.).
