TRANSNET Co-Investigator

My research is focused on optical fibre communication, whereby digital data modulates light that is then transmitted over huge distances using optical fibres. According to the 2009 IEEE ROGUCCI report, over 99% of all long distance international data traffic is carried using optical fibres and as such they underpin the internet and today’s global communication infrastructure. It is rich area of research, which encompasses both the theory and practice of engineering, ranging from developing new science, mathematics and technology to understanding the environmental, economic and societal impact which these optical fibre communication systems have on today’s global community. It is an area I have found fascinating that I have been actively carrying out research in for almost twenty five years. I have been TRANSNET Co-Investigator since 2018. 

 My current research explores four areas:

1.Algorithms for digital coherent transceivers.
2.Ultra-dense passive optical networks.
3.Statistical optical communication system design.
4.Cognitive optical networks
