General

I studied at the University of Burgundy, Dijon, France where I was awarded the BA and MA degrees in Physics in 1998. I joined the Photonics Research Group at Aston University in 1999, and I received a PhD degree for studies on optical solitons and nonlinear solitary waves in 2002.

 

Since 2002, I have been working with the Photonics Research Group; first as a Research Fellow and later as a Lecturer and then Senior Lecturer.

 

Thus far my main research focus has been in the field of nonlinear optics and, more specifically, on the exploration of fundamental mathematical theories of modern nonlinear science and their application in the context of fibre-optic communications and laser systems, as well as on the design and modelling of novel nonlinear photonic systems and devices.

 

I teach Computing and Programming and Digital Transmission at both undergraduate and MSc levels.

I have published more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals and refereed international conference proceedings, and produced 3 technological patents. I have been awarded several research grants from various funding bodies.
