Research – Outline

My current research is in the application of holographic optical tweezers (HOT) to the trapping and deformation of oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions, with specific interest in the potential for distended emulsions droplets as reaction vessels on the attolitre scale and in potential applications of microfabrication by polymerisation of deformed emulsions.
