Principal Investigator


Gabriele Grosso, PhD

Assistant Professor of Physics, Graduate Center – CUNY

Group Leader at Photonics Initiative at ASRC

 

 

Gabriele Grosso received his BS and MS in Physics from the University of Padova in 2007 and 2010, respectively. During his Master, he spent a year in the Butov’s group at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) with a scholarship issued by the UC Abroad Exchange Program. In 2014, he completed his Ph.D. in physics for his work “Hydrodynamics and nonlinear phenomena in polariton fluids” under the supervision of Prof. Benoit Deveaud at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). He then joined the Quantum Photonics Group of Prof. Dirk Englund at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a postdoc. Gabriele was a fellow of the Swiss National Science Foundation from 2014 to 2017 and a postdoc associate from 2017 to 2018.

As November 2018 Gabriele joined the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center.

Enrique Mejia

Graduate Student of Physics, Graduate Center – CUNY

 

 

 

 

Enrique received dual BS degrees in electrical engineering and physics from the University of Texas at Austin in 2018. During that time, he studied light-matter interactions in two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (2D TMDCs) under Prof. Elaine Li. In the summer of 2017 he was invited to research quantum cascade laser-based mid-infrared harmonic frequency combs in the group of Prof. Federico Capasso at Harvard University.
