Overview

I work with manipulating and measuring the spatial/polarisation and spectral/temporal properties of light, mostly as it travels through multimode fibre. This has applications in optical telecommunications, biomedical imaging, quantum mechanics and astronomical instrumentation but is also just a lot of fun.

There's a good chance that at any point in time I'm using a spatial light modulator in some way to acheive these goals.
