Dr. Daria earned his PhD in Applied Physics from Osaka University (Japan, 2000). From 2001-04, he has been a Scientist at the Risoe National Laboratory(Denmark), where he worked with spatial light modulators (SLM) to produce multi-beam optical tweezers for manipulating microscopic objects and cells. From 2004-07, he took up a teaching position at the University of the Philippines and established a group to work on ultrafast lasers in combination with SLM technology for trapping, non-linear processes and fs-laser nanosurgery of cells. In 2007, he joined the Australian National University to set up a SLM-based multi-photon microscope for applications in neuroscience. His appointment is currently shared between the Research School of Physics and Engineering and the John Curtin School of Medical Research.
