Research Interests

During my PhD, I worked on controlling the propagation of light in white materials, such as a sheet of paper. Normally, a light beam cannot pass through the paper. Tiny particles in the paper scatter the light out of the beam. This way, any well-defined incoming beam is transformed into a diffuse blob of light.

Current Research

I am currently working on optical phase conjugation for turbidity suppression in biological tissue.
