My research blends nanophotonics, plasmonics, hydrodynamics, thermodynamics and mechanics to explore intricate details of light-matter interaction on the nanoscale.

I am interested in fundamental aspects of energy transfer between quantum emitters, propagating and trapped photons, phonons and electron plasma oscillations (plasmons) as well as in thermodynamics of light trapping and energy conversion.

These fundamental studies have contributed to the development of new nanostructured devices and materials for applications in light generation, optical information processing, bio(chemical)sensing, heat management and solar energy harvesting.
