Personal profile

Research Interests

My research interests include but are not limited to fibre optical parametric amplification, optical parametric amplitication in other than fibre platforms, optical networking and machine learning algorithms for assessment of performance in optical networks.

I made my PhD in optical signal processing and performance monitoring for optical networks. Later i joined Chalmers University of Technology to start studying parametric amplification in the photonics laboratory of MC2 department. In the last year i have been with Aston University with an awarded Marie Curie Fellowship to study several challenging aspects of parametric amplification such as polarization, nonlinear crosstalk and broadband parametric amplification.
