  • Exciton logic, based on timed multiple ultrafast laser pulse sequences;
  • Alignment of nanorods - microspectroscopic studies of preferentially aligned molecules and nanoparticles;
  • Mechnico-optical piezoelectrics;
  • Time-resolved super-resolution optical microscopy of excitonic materials;
  • Quantum battery - ultrafast laser spectroscopy of polaritonic systems (with James Quach at CSIRO and Exciton Science's James Hutchison).
  • Singlet fission, as part of a joint PhD with the University of Bayreuth in Germany.
