Research interests

I have expertise in the evaporation of droplets for low-cost solar cell fabrication by drop-on-demand ink-jet printing, fabrication of polymer and plasmonic waveguides, optical manipulation of microparticles and biological molecules for microfluidic applications and compound parabolic concentrators to be utilzed in solar cells for an increased output power.
