Currently working as a post graduate researcher at applied optics and photonics division Heriot Watt University Edinburgh UK with James Watt Scholarship. My objective is to is to develop a novel laser tool for the surgical procedure of early stage cancers in the colon and lungs of humans. According to cancer research foundation UK, the bowel cancer and the lung cancer are the most common cancers in UK sharing the third and fourth positions respectively. The novelty in the surgical modality achieved through high peak power operation of ultrafast lasers on the tissue surface.
Syam Mohan P.M. received the MSc degree in Electronics in 2008 and the M.Tech degree in Optoelectronics and Optical communication in 2011 from Mahatma Gandhi University and University of Kerala, India respectively. He successfully completed his M.Tech project at Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute (CGCRI), Kolkata, India on fibre optic chemical sensor
He joined in Vinvish Technologies Pvt. Ltd. (2011-2014) India (Development Centre for Nuphoton Technologies USA) as an Optics engineer, Where he was working in design and development of photodynamic therapy laser, Development of Supercontinuum laser and design and development of confocal microscope in collaboration with Central Glass and Ceramic Research Institute (CSIR-CGCRI), Kolkata, DBT Govt. of India, RCC Trivandrum, ICMR India. Later he joined the National Centre for Laser Applications (NCLA-NUIG), Galway, Ireland as a researcher in laser technology (2014-2015), there he developed his interest in bio-photonics (“Anti biofilm technology for indwelling catheters using UV light” in collaboration with Teleflex medical USA, “Ultrafast laser processing of FFR catheter tip” in collaboration with Medtronic USA), laser Spectroscopy, profilometry and microscopy etc.
