    Personal profile

    General

    Srikanth Sugavanam is a post-doctoral research scientist/EU Project Manager with the Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AIPT), Aston University, Birmingham UK. He did his B.Sc in Physics from B.G.E.S college, Kolkata and B.Tech in Optics and Photonics from the Applied Optics and Photonics Department of the University of Calcutta. He further pursued his M.S. degrees in Photonics from the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland and Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, Germany under the Erasmus Mundus OpSciTech programme. He completed his PhD in 2015 from the AIPT under Prof. Sergei Turitsyn, specialising in the area of real-time intensity and spectral measurements of fibre laser dynamics. Apart from this, he has also worked in the area of optical metamaterials, Raman fibre lasers, and random fibre lasers. His contributions have been featured in several international journals, including Nature Photonics and Nature Communications.
     

    Apart from actively pursuing research, Srikanth is fulfilling the role of Programme Manager for the Marie S.-Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship programme, MULTIPLY, co-ordinated by Aston University. The Programme, consisting of a consortium of 46 premier photonics research institutes across the globe and academic organisation, will be offering Marie S.-Curie fellowships to aspiring post-docs to pursue research in area of photonics of their choice, with a host of their choice.
