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.

General

Dr. Ezequiel received the binational PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the Federal University of Technology – Paraná (UTFPR) in Brazil and Technical Physics 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 is currently a Marie Curie MULTIPLY Fellow at the Aston University, leading a European Project in cooperation with groups in UK, Germany and Filand.
