Dr. Hilton B. de Aguiar

Hilton is an experimentalist working with nonlinear microscopy and spectroscopy for probing complex soft matter systems. His PhD focused on using nonlinear optical tools to unravel molecular level details of colloidal systems (EPFL/Lausanne, jointly with Max-Planck Institute/Stuttgart, 2011). Currently, he holds a Junior Research Chair position at the prestigious Ecole Normale Superieure/Paris. His lab focuses on developments of computational imaging tools for enhanced Raman imaging, and also exploiting complex light for nonlinear optical applications. He has published 26 peer-reviewed papers and invited over 25 times to present his work world-wide.
