The light-matter interaction always fascinates me a lot and I want to be a molecular spectroscopist. For me Spectroscopy is not only a tool it an ‘eyewear’ for scientists to ‘see’ molecules and its movements. In PhD, I am motivated to instigate photophysics in optoelectronic materials by ultrashort laser pulses.
