My main research interest lies on the interaction of light with subwavelength small structures.

I currently hold a DFG research fellowship on which I work with Prof. Otto Muskens, head of the integrated nano-photonics group at the University of Southampton. My current research is mainly focused on applications of artificial intelligence in nano-optics and photonics.

Until end of 2018, I was postdoc at CEMES-CNRS with Dr. Aurélien Cuche and Dr. Christian Girard. I obtained my PhD in 2016 at the Université Paul Sabatier Toulouse under the supervision of Prof. Vincent Paillard and Dr. Arnaud Arbouet. I studied physics at the Technical University of Munich in Germany, where I wrote my Diploma thesis at the Walter Schottky Institute in the group of Prof. Markus-Christian Amann.

A python toolkit for electro-dynamical simulations

pyGDM is a python toolkit for simple and rapid electro-dynamical simulations of photonic nanostructures. If you are interested, have a look at the paper or try some of the tutorials and examples from the online documentation. You can clone the package from gitlab or download it from pypi (install via $ pip install pygdm2).
