    Personal profile

    Research Interests


    Reseach interests

    My research interests include high speed, optical fibre communication systems, optical devices and sub-systems, and enabling technologies for future, extreme ultra-wideband optical networks.  I am a current EPSRC Manufacturing Fellow, and a former Royal Society Industry Fellow. 


    Since returning to Aston I developed new courses for our Applied Physics degree in (i) Electromagnetism and (ii) Mathematical Methods II (aka Computational Physics).
