      Collapse Overview
      As scientist my passion is using knowledge, skills, common sense, and scientific methods to solve complex, real-world problems. During my education and early career, I had the great opportunity to study optics and laser physics via various applications: laser photo-acoustic, material science, high-pressure physics, ultra-fast optics, semiconductor industry, EUV lithography, optical metrology, biophysics and medicine.

      Equipped with essential technical skills and extensive hands-on experience, obtained through participation in R&D projects, I look forward to harnessing the power of optical science to help shape the world around us for the better.
