My research focuses on hybrid, scalable, and integrated photonic quantum technologies. In particular, I am interested in theoretical and experimental investigations of interacting and correlated open quantum optical systems. We engineer light-matter interactions and employ highly excited Rydberg states to create large optical non-linearity, which leads to exotic states of light required for many different quantum technologies based on photons.
