My research focuses in Neuromorphic Photonics and Nanophotonics.

Neuromorphic Photonics is an emerging field that aims at emulating the powerful computational capabilities of the brain using ultrafast light-enabled technologies for transformative developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Within this field our focus is: (1) to develop compact, low-energy, ultrafast artificial spiking photonic neurons able to operate at speeds up to 1 billion times faster than biological neurons in the brain and (2) to deliver functional neuromorphic photonic platforms able to perform complex computational tasks for novel developments in ultrafast AI.

I also carry out research in nanophotonics focusing on new hybrid nanofabrication techniques for the heterogeneous integration of optoelectronic nanostructures with high positional accuracy in desired receiving surfaces. The goal of this research is to enable the fabrication of bespoke hybrid nanophotonic systems merging diverse nanoscale components from different material systems in the same platform. Examples of our research in this field include (1) the precise integration of semiconductor nanowire lasers in on-chip waveguded systems (2) the coupling of nanowire lasers with nanoantennas for vertically-emitting nanolasers and the fabrication of 3D nanowire lattices for novel THz detectors.
