Research Interests

Metamaterials, which were highlighted in the December 2010 edition of Science as one “10 insights that have changed science since the dawn of the new millennium”, are a class of artificial structures that can be designed to interact with electromagnetic or acoustic radiation in ways that no naturally occurring material can. My research interests are focused on understanding the behaviour of these new composite structures. By optimizing and utilising these designs, my research demonstrates that one can develop devices that guide and manipulate light, microwaves, sound and fluid flow in novel and exciting ways.
