Jalpa Soni joins the Soft Matter Lab

Jalpa Soni, PhD from the bioNaP lab at the Indian Institute of Science
Education and research Kolkata, India, joined the Soft Matter Lab On June
1st, 2016 as a post-doctoral researcher. Her PhD thesis entitled
"Quantitative Mueller matrix polarimetry in biophotonics and
nanoplasmonics" deals with understanding the interaction of polarized
light in various biophotonic and plasmonic systems. She studied both
fundamental effects such as understanding spin-orbit interaction (SOI) of
light and polarization dependent beam shifts as well as various practical
applications involving biological systems. At the Soft Matter Lab she will
work on a project related to the measurement of critical Casimir force.
