I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in Professor Oskar Painter's group at California Inistitute of Technology.
My research interest lies in n
ano-photonics, opto-mechanics, and quantum optics. I am currently studying
nano-scale opto-mechanical systems and their applications in photonics and quantum information processing.

My past research works include:
1. Effective magnetic field for photons and topological photonic states [5,6,7,9,11,12,13,14] (theory and experiment).
2. Magnetometry using nitrogen-vacancy centers in diamond [8] (experiment).
3. Magneto-optical effect [3,4,10,15] (theory).
