Research:
Atomic, Molecular and Optical; Condensed Matter - Experimental
Research Interests:
Ultrafast optics is my primary research interest. In particular, I study the interaction of ultrashort pulses of light with semiconductors. In direct-gap semiconductors, such as gallium arsenide, the coherent optical response is determined by many-body interactions among electronic carriers excited by the incident pulses.
