The fascinating thing about optics is that there are numerous applications in various technological domains. The term ‘lighting and Imaging’ have become common parlance in various testing and characterization procedures. To begin with my optics escapades, I started as an Intern where I was acquainted various roles that were pivotal in the production of imaging systems.  I also worked as project trainee and optical engineer with tasks involving simulations, programming and experimental work for various optical components and production tests for optical fingerprint sensors. As part of my research, I am currently working on analysis and quantification of performance data based on light field measurements. In addition, my works also involve the construction of an optotechnical laboratory for the analysis of lighting systems, focusing mainly on projection systems for human-machine interface (head-up display, virtual and augmented reality systems) 


Research focus:
Research projects:
  • lightfield measurement
