The Optical Sciences Group performs studies in extreme events, rogue waves and soliton theory. These are considered to be the most important discoveries in the twentieth and twenty first centuries mathematical and experimental physics.

The group develops basic theory of dissipative solitons that includes high-power ultra-short pulse lasers and giant waves in the ocean. The group is strongly linked to international research laboratories working on the forefront of ocean waves, nonlinear optics and dissipative systems.
