    Pros

    Currently, I am dealing with two issues (1) Design and development of ultra short pulses with high repetition frequency laser source using quantum nano-structures based semiconductor lasers, (2) Coherent manipulation and control of light through Bio-photonic structures in order to understand bio-imaging.

    I have done some significant work in biophotonics last couple of years. I am keenly interested to continue my research in biophotonics particularly for developing the optical imaging techniques.
