Current research topic:

Investigation of the flow of photons and phonons in optomechanical arrays where the optomechanical bandstructure can be engineered using arbitrary configurations of the laser field impinging on the sample. This includes topologically nontrivial phases where transport takes place in chiral edge states and nonequilibrium dynamics becomes important. The influence of interactions and time-dependent dynamics on topological behaviour in such a bosonic system will be studied, to explore what sets it apart from the conventional single-particle situation. In addition, further studies may include optomechanics in other unconventional settings.
