About me

I received my doctorate from LabHC, St-Etienne, France in December 2022. My doctoral thesis was a part of the Innovative Training Network "GREAT" - Grating Reflectors Enabled Laser Applications and Training", supported by the EU Research Framework Programme H2020 / Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. My work was on the fabrication of grating waveguide structures for spectral (polarization) stabilization and wavelength multiplexing of diode lasers (976nm) and thin-disk lasers (1030 nm). During my postdoctoral research fellowship at LabHC, France + University of Moncton, Canada under the Mitacs Globalink Research fellowship, I designed resonant grating laser mirrors for monolithic and compact alternatives to achieve single-mode emission laser operation.

I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at Albanova, KTH in the Non-linear and quantum photonics (NQP) group. I work mainly on the integration of Lithium niobate photonics devices (modulators and switches) into Silicon quantum photonics circuits for cryogenic conditions.

My research interests include (but are not limited to) integrated photonics, micro and nano-structuring, nano-fabrication, and quantum optics.
