I am a Reader and former Royal Society University Research Fellow, in the Theoretical Physics Group of the Physics Department, University of Bristol, UK. My research interests are primarily in the geometric and topological aspects of interference and field morphology, especially:
· Singular and topological optics (singular lines and points of scalar, vector, and tensor wave fields), including optical vortices, wave dislocations and polarization singularities.
· Statistical geometry and topology of random functions, and applications in quantum chaos, statistical optics, and cosmology.
· Geometry and topology of knots, links, braids and ribbons.
· Mathematical methods for optical nanoscience, including surface plasmonics, superresolution, optical lattices ...
I am the editor for propagation, diffraction and scattering for the Journal of Optics A: Pure and Applied Optics and formerly an associate editor of Optics Express, and am on the committee of the Institute of Physics Optical Group, whom I represent on the board of directors of the European Optical Society.
