I dabble in Astrophysics, Cosmology, and Physics of gravity. I am obsessed with observational hints that could help address problems in fundamental physics.
My research focuses on the development of novel optical imaging technology (Optical Coherence Tomography - OCT) that can be used in clinics to image various part of the human body for diagnostic purposes or for monitoring the outcome of drug therapy or surgery.
My main current interests are in the field of theoretical condensed matter physics, with a focus on systems with random disorder, as well as strongly correlated classical and quantum condensed matter systems subject to strongly competing, or frustrated, interactions.

I work in on gravitation, quantum physics, and the overlap between these two subjects. I am interested in questions that provide us with information about the foundations of physics, particularly those that could be tested by experiment. I have a lively and energetic research group of about 10 graduate and undergraduate students, where we address a number of interesting questions in physics, such as
