My research treats nonlinear optics within the broader context of general wave physics. For example, my group is developing an optical hydrodynamics in which the nonlinear propagation of light is described in terms of fluid flow. The new language allows optical modeling and observation of material behavior that is difficult, if not impossible, to see by other means. It also provides a framework for the discovery of new photonic effects.
