My research interest and career goal is to deploy quantum mechanics for better understanding the world around us and thereby improving our livings on a green and blue planet. While I have always been die-hard fans of quantum, I believe in only quantum technology having strong PRACTICAL relevance. In particular, we thrive on developing mass-producible, highly-intergrated, turn-key, and room-temperature quantum devices. 

The ongoing and near-term research topics in my lab, Laboratory for Quantum Enhanced Systems and Technology, include the following:

  • Quantum-Enhanced Biomedical Imaging and Treatment
  • Quantum Processing on Chip
  • High-dimensional Quantum Communications
  • Attojoule Photonics
