    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    Md Asif Iqbal received the B.Sc. degree in electrical, electronic and communication engineering from the Military Institute of Science and Technology (MIST), Dhaka, Bangladesh, in 2010, the M.Sc. degree in photonic networks engineering from Scuola Superiore SantAnna, Pisa, Italy, and Aston University, Birmingham, U.K., in 2014, and the D.Phil. degree in electronic engineering from the Aston University, Birmingham, U.K., in 2018. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow with the Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AIPT) at Aston University. His research interests are mainly focused on advanced Raman amplification techniques for long-haul and ultra-wideband coherent optical communications. He has authored/co-authored more than 40 refereed journal and conference papers on advanced noise and nonlinear performance improvement techniques for Raman amplified fibre optic transmission systems.
