Dr. Douguet earned his Ph.D. in theoretical atomic, molecular, and optical physics from UCF and Paris-Saclay University (France) in 2010. He pursued postdoctoral training in attosecond science and strong-field physics at UC Davis, Drake University, and UCF. From 2019 to 2023, he served as an assistant professor at Kennesaw State University in Atlanta, USA, before starting as an assistant professor at UCF in 2023.

Research Area

Theoretical and computational description of ultra-fast phenomena in atomic and molecular systems interacting with intense laser fields.

Dr. Douguet’s present research focuses on:

  • Advancing computational techniques and theoretical models to explore high-order harmonic generation and high-harmonic spectroscopy
  • Describing the interaction of matter with optical vortex beams
  • Developing methodologies to probe the ultra-fast electron dynamics and study the electronic coherence in multi-electron systems
  • Exploring circular dichroism phenomena
  • Developing approaches for time-resolved x-ray spectroscopy of molecules
