I joined the Photonic Research group of Electronic Engineering department in October 2000. I received a Ph.D degree in Electronic Engineering in July 2007. I was a holder of the Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship in 2008-2011. 

My research interests are in numerical modelling of fibre Brag gratings, in modelling fibre lasers systems. I work in close collaboration with experimentalists from the Photonics Research group.
