Summary

 

Summary

 I have obtained my first degree at the Technical University of Budapest, Hungary and subsequently my DPhil degree at the University of Oxford. After completing my post graduate studies, I did my post-doctoral studies at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford. I was appointed Lecturer in Photonics in 2002 at Imperial College London and in 2006 I was promoted to Reader in Optics and in 2009 to Professor of Optical Physics. My research interests include the theory of electromagnetic problems, diffraction, focusing and microscopy with especial emphasis on confocal microscopy and optical data storage.
