Research interests:

Electromagnetic simulations for the modeling of the optical response of semiconductor (excitonic), metallic (plasmonic), and hybrid (plexcitonic, plasphonic) nanosystems, surface-enhanced Raman scattering, electrical and thermal transport, hot electron generation, active plasmonics, propagative surface plasmons/SPP and waveguiding. Effective medium theories. Molecular Dynamincs of metallic nanoparticles. EELS and CL theory and simulations.

Numerical methods handled:
  • Boundary Elements Method (BEM).
  • Dipole Discrete Approximation (DDA) - DDSCAT package.
  • Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) - Lumerical solutions.
  • Finite Elements Method (FEM) - Comsol multi-physics.
  • Mie Theory.
