I am a scientist in optics and photonics. My educational background is interdisciplinary, including both physics and engineering. I am currently a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University in Prof. Shanhui Fan’s research group. My research interests mainly include quantum photonics, topological photonics, metasurfaces and metamaterials, nanophotonics, and nonlinear optics. 

I am joining McGill University (Department of Physics) in early 2023 as an Assistant Professor and an MEI Chair in Quantum Photonics.
