Dr. Gric’s research career has been focused on the investigation of waveguide devices (waveguide modulators, filters etc.), namely on proposing their electrodynamical analysis. Applied research includes the design of microwave frequency selective structures, waveguide modulators, filters. Fundamental research is primarily concerned with developing rigorous computational methods for the electrodynamical analysis of the waveguide structures. Another major goal of her studies is plasmonics as the examination of the interaction between electromagnetic field and free electrons in a metal. The optically-active nanostructures have been simulated and their fundamental photonic properties have been explored. Moreover, the broad scope of research carried out by Dr. Gric has included investigations into the new fascinating properties of novel materials. Dr. Gric is involved in development of unusual materials and structures that can manipulate the flow of light in ways that are useful in optical sensing, photovoltaics, solid state lighting, fiber optics and other applications. Dr. Gric also has a record of effective teaching in the rank of Associate Professor. She has been conducting independent research projects for the past eight years. Dr. Gric has published extensively in her field of investigation with more than 40 peer-reviewed papers in top journals in physics, electrodynamics, and optics. It is worth noting that her recent publication rate is getting even higher with her being the first author.
