I am a Researcher at Microsoft Research, Cambridge. I work on Project Silica, a cloud storage technology that uses femtosecond lasers to store data in glass.
After I obtained BSc and MSc in Physics and Biophysics from Vilnius University, Lithuania, I joined the Physical Optics research group at Southampton’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) in 2012. Since then my main research interests lie in the areas of ultrafast laser direct writing and nanostructuring in transparent materials. For last several years my activities involve developing and implementing geometric phase based 2D, 3D optics and polarization multiplexed optical data storage.
