Horizons of Optics, Photonics and Emerging Sciences (HOPES) Webinar Series | Prof Andrew Ellis
With this series, the IEEE UK and Ireland Photonics Chapter is taking a different approach to seminal webinars. Instead of focussing on a single piece of research and/or innovation, we invite highly impactful researchers to discuss the future of their research domains. This will allow the speaker to share their informed view of future innovations on a platform that encourages a true exchange for shaping the evolution of science.
We hope that in such discussions, unique solutions in pure and interdisciplinary domains can be unravelled.
Andrew Ellis is the Professor of Optical Communications at Aston University where he is also deputy director of the Institute of Photonics Technologies (AIPT) group. His research interests include the evolution of core and metro networks, and the application of photonics to sensing.
He has published over 170 journal papers and over 25 patents in the field of photonics, primarily targeted at increasing capacity, reach and functionality in the optical layer.
