Dr Girish Lakhwani

Research summary

Dr Girish Lakhwani is a lecturer in the School of Chemistry at The University of Sydney and a theme Leader in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science (ACEx). His research is focused on using polarized light as a probe to investigate the origin of optical properties from a single molecule to a bulk level and to identify the scaling laws that underpin excitonic processes in optoelectronic devices such as polariton lasers and ultrafast switches. In addition to experiments, he also uses theory to develop models and perform simulations to advance understanding about light-matter interactions in condensed matter.
