Dr Bill Corcoran
Lecturer

I investigate methods to future-proof fibre optic infrastructure, which forms the communications backbone of our increasingly connected society.

Professor Arthur Lowery

(1) Develop brain machine interfaces for bionic vision that stimulate the visual cortex. (2) Create photonic integrated circuits to improve reach, flexibility and energy efficiency of optical communications.

Professor Malin Premaratne

I work in some of the most fundamental areas of electrical engineering including quantum-electrodynamics, charge-transport in nanostructures and photon interactions with waveguides and biological media. Applications of this work include photonics and biomedical engineering.

Dr Nikola Zlatanov
Lecturer

I develop communication schemes for next-generation wireless networks.
