Research Interests
Optics

My research is centered around interactions of highly focused laser beams with small (micron-sized) spherical objects. This work has both computational and experimental components. Among the first experimental projects to be undertaken are the construction of a simple optical tweezer, which is a device that catches and hold small objects with the forces exerted on it by the light of a highly focused laser and the modification of that tweezer to take measurements of the light scattered off the small object caught in it.
