Personal profile

Research interests

My primary research interest is in the physics of holographic optical tweezers and their applications in nanoscience. This work forms part of the Dynamic Holographic Assembler project.

I am also interested in molecular nanophysics. In collaboration with other members of the Nanophysics and Soft Matter group, I study image formation in the atomic force microscope (AFM) and single molecule force-spectroscopy.
I also study self-assembling molecular nanostructures through molecular modeling techniques including Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations.

I have co-authored a book on Liquid Crystalline Polymers
