Research Interest:

    Current: Low energy electron-molecule collision dynamics using novel velocity map imaging spectroscopic technique. Future: (i) Photo-electron/photo-ion imaging spectroscopy using femtosecond lasers. (ii) Energy-, time- and angle-resolved photo-electron spectroscopy from surfaces and interfaces using femtosecond lasers.
