My research interest is in creating and probing out-of-equilibrium soft matter systems using light. To this end, I explore the interface of statistical optics and soft matter physics including topics in light scattering, nanophotonics, optical forces, Brownian motion and pattern formation.
I am an experimental physicist by training, but I am also deeply interested in theoretical and computational questions related to the above-mentioned topics.
Furthermore, I research and write about the history of science.
I blog and podcast on my research and learnings. Links to them : https://backscattering.blog/
