I am currently a Senior Lecturer in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Glasgow in Scotland.

My expertise spans several areas of optics, reaching from singular optics and the study of the topology of wave fields, to atomic, molecular and nonlinear optics as well as and quantum optics. An important aspect of my work is the dynamics in the interplay between spin and angular momentum in general fields. In particular I am working on:

  • Singular and topological optics
  • Focussed fields and nano-optics
  • Light matter interactions based on angular momentum transfer
  • Spatial and temporal pulse shaping in nonlinear optics
  • Optical beam shift effects
  • Quantum and atom optics for information technologies
  • Electron vortices
  • Molecular chirality

J Phys Communications New and open access Journal of Physics Communications is open for submissions.
