Dr Lidia Galdino, co-investigator on the EPSRC TRANSNET Programme, has been awarded a prestigious Research Fellowship from the Royal Academy of Engineering.
The Fellowship provides early-career researchers with five years’ worth of funding and mentorship, enabling them to develop independent careers in research and establish themselves as future leaders in their fields. Dr Galdino’s project focus will be “Capacity-Approaching, Ultra-Wideband Nonlinear Optical Fibre Transmission Systems”.
Dr Galdino’s research fellowship aims to address the exponentially growing capacity demand in optical fibre communications by exploiting 50THz of optical fibre transmission bandwidth while fundamentally changing the process of signal generation and detection.
On being awarded the fellowship Dr Galdino said:
"I'm absolutely delighted to have been selected to hold one of the prestigious Royal Academy of Engineering's research fellowships. This is a highly competitive Fellowship and I couldn’t be more excited to become a RAEng Research fellow. I look forward to using this research independence to shape the future of optical communication systems."
