    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    The research interests include the design, numerical modelling and development of inovative all-fibre  integrated devices based on microstructured and photonic crystal fibres for application in optical filters, fibre sensors and fibre lasers.

    INCORE: The project aims the development of high frequency fibre-based ultrasonic devices for innovative solutions in the fields of Acousto-optic, Optoacoustics and Magnetoacoustics. 


    Dr. Ezequiel received the binational PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Technology – Paraná (UTFPR) in Brazil and Technical Physics Engineering from the Friedrich-Schiller-Universität (FSU) in Germany (2015). During this period, he worked with the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT) in Jena, developing all-fibre devices for fibre laser applications. In 2016, he joined the Graduate Program in Electrical and Computer Engineering at UTFPR, supervising students and researching in the fields of dynamic multiwavelength optical filters and multicore fibres. He joined the Aston University in 2019 as a Marie Curie Research Fellow, coordinating an European Horizon 2020 Project in cooperation with groups in UK and Germany.
