We are interested in developing new techniques to control the propagation of light through opaque media. The reason things look opaque (white) is because it reflects all wavelengths of light due to multiple scattering. The ultimate goal of our research is to control light so that we can noninvasively peek into thick opaque tissue for diagnosis and treatment of disease as well as for fundamental biological studies. We emphasize on interdisciplinary research that lies between physics, engineering, and biology and will venture into many different interesting paths that pop up along the way.
