May 2022: Invited lecture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
September 2021: I am honored to be elected as the upcoming Early Career Representative (ECR) for Commission B: Fields and Waves of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI). This is a 3 (2021-2023 vice-chair) +3 (2023 - 2025 chair) years appointment where we will expand the Com B activities for increasing the young scientist representation!
November 2020: Honored to be selected for the 2020 Princeton Pathway into the Academy Program! This year-long career development program prepares early-stage researchers for faculty careers in engineering and computer science! You can find the link to the program here.
October 2020: Excellent news! I have been elected to serve as a Chair (2021-2023) for the OSA Photonic Metamaterials Technical Group starting January 2021.
I am a postdoctoral research fellow working at the Engheta group, University of Pennsylvania, working on several projects revolving around disruptive concepts in advanced electromagnetics, complex media-metamaterials, and disruptive concepts for next generation wave-matter interactions. I am part of several prestigious projects e.g., the AFOSR MURI-Attojoule Nano-optoelectronics, the Simons Collaboration on Extreme Wave Phenomena Based on Symmetries, the MRSEC Research at Penn, and the AFOSR MURI - Meta Imaging project.
My main expertise is in electromagnetic (EM) wave physics, RF and antenna engineering, plasmonics, metamaterials, metasurfaces, and applied mathematics. My interests include also EM teaching and EM pedagogical research.
I am an active member of the engineering (IEEE), radio science (URSI), and optical (OSA) communities.
