My research interests are in experimental AMO physics, specifically in the following areas:
- Dynamics of molecules in ultrafast intense laser fields.
- Laser spectroscopy of atoms, molecules and clusters.
- Electron impact dissociative ionization of molecules.
- Nonlinear optical properties of materials.
