Dwight's research centers around fractal electrodynamics, investigating ways in which multi-scale structures imprint their geometry on interrogating waves and the methods by which self-similarity can be used to design new classes of filters and radiators. Applications include the remote description of rough surfaces, scattering from and inverse scattering of fractal superlattices, and the synthesis of novel fractal antennas and arrays. In the area of electromagnetic chirality, he explores the design of new microwave, millimeter wave and optical devices. Hi lab examines theoretically and numerically new classes of chiral filters, radiators, shields and guiding structures. In the area of waves, topology, and symmetry, Dwight investigates the effect of topology and symmetry on wave scattering and propagation through the study of wave interactions with families of canonical knots and unknots. Dwight also investigates practical ways to enhance leadership, individual influence and group dynamics; and examines analytical and behavioral ways in which decisions.
