My research is focused on computer simulations to study the phenomena of light scattering by macroscopic random media. Conventional approach mostly uses diffusion approximation, Monte Carlo simulation, etc., since such problems are extremely complex to solve. By using a new algorithm, the pseudo-spectral time-domain method, combined with parallel computing technology, this problem can be accurately studied by solving Maxwell's equations now.
In particular, I am most interested in bio-optics research. Currently my research is focused on understanding the optical characteristics of macroscopic random media, the next step would be to investigate optical properties of biological media, based on Maxwell's equations. In summary, my current research interest is: By numerically solving Maxwell's equations, to obtain microscopic geometrical information from macroscopic scattered light from (biological) random media.
