  • Professor of Photonics
  • Dept of Electronic & Electrical Eng
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Received the degree of engineering from the Ecole Supérieure d’Optique, Orsay, France, and the Diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies (D.E.A.) in Optics and Photonics from the University Paris XI, Orsay, France, in 1996. He spent one year as a project engineer with Sfim-ODS, working on the development of microchips lasers and portable range finders. He, then, joined the Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton, Southampton UK, in 1998, to work on diode pumped high-power ytterbium-doped fibre-lasers, with particular interest on Q-switched system and 980-nm generation. This work led to the award of a PhD in 2001. He is currently a Professor of Photonics at University College london, and the UCL site director for the UCL/Cambridge doctoral training centre in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems. His work has led to over 200 publications in international peer reviewed journals and conferences, attracting over 6000 citations and 3 patents.

Research Groups
Research Summary

Current Research concentrates on integrated optoelectronic devices and systems. It includes works on uncooled WDM sources, agile tuneable laser diode and monolithic optical frequency comb generator using Quantum Confined Stark Effect, high frequency photodetectors (UTC, travelling wave), photonic integration and optical frequency generation systems in the optical and millimetre wave domains (DWDM, THZ). 

Teaching Summary

Current Teaching ranges from undergraduate to postgraduates and includes Mathematics (1st year undergraduate for the faculty of Engineering), professional skills (communication skills, 1st year undergraduate faculty of engineering), tutorial (2nd Year undergraduate), and two courses on advance photonics devices and systems (postgraduate). Strong involvement in the project based learning activity for undergraduate (1st and 2n year) through the supervision and design of scenarios.
