I studied the dynamics of biomaterials by using ultrafast laser spectroscopy, terahertz time domain spectroscopy and pump-probe techniques in my PhD. My current research includes studies of novel materials under extreme conditions, as well as high-pressure kinetic studies of melting and other phase transitions utilizing dynamic-DAC and various modulation spectroscopic techniques. Eventually, I would like to couple laser spectroscopy and pump-probe techniques into high-pressure kinetics studies.
