Willingness to take Ph.D. students: Yes

Current/Potential Topics for PhD Project:

- Approaching the capacity of nonlinear optical fibre
- Coherent atmospheric optical communication
- Free-space optical (FSO) satellite communication
- MIMO visible light communication
- Reliable FSO communication for mobile backhaul

If you are interested in the above or similar research topics, please send me an email with your CV. I will contact you back if I need further information.

I am especially interested in working with self-motivated students with solid background in Math, very good academic record, and strong commitment to research.

My research in a nutshell

I study the modelling, design, and analysis of optical communication systems. I have investigated novel MIMO and cooperative/relaying techniques for energy-efficient and high-speed atmospheric optical links suitable for terrestrial (e.g., mobile backhaul) or satellite applications. My research has also addressed unconditionally secure communication through quantum cryptography and efficient data transmission over fibre-optic communication systems impaired by dispersion and nonlinear effects.
