Profile Summary

Amol is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, India. He heads the UltrafaFast Optical Communications and High-performance Integrated Photonics (UFO-CHIP) group at IIT Delhi. He graduated from the Delhi College of Engineering, India, with a BEng in Electronics and Communications. He then received an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship to pursue an MSc in Photonics from Gent University, Belgium; VUB, Belgium and the University of St. Andrews, UK. At St. Andrews, he worked on the analogues of black holes in optical fibers. Following which he was awarded an EPSRC scholarship to carry out his doctoral research at the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), University of Southampton, UK. During the course of his PhD, he developed ultrafast waveguide laser sources with repetition rates of up to 15 GHz for applications in non-linear microscopy and optical frequency metrology. After graduating, he received an EPSRC doctoral prize fellowship to work on power-scaling of mode-locked waveguide lasers and using graphene in pulsed laser systems at the ORC. He then worked as an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) Fellow in the School of Physics at the University of Sydney. He has more than 130 publications, including 43 Journal papers and 5 post-deadline presentations. He has served on the Technical Program Committee of several conferences, including CLEO USA, CLEO Pacific RIM, SPIE Photonics Europe, SPIE Optics and Photonics. He is the 2018 recipient of the OSA's Ivan P. Kaminow Outstanding Early Career Professional Prize and the 2020 Institute of Engineers India (IEI) Young Engineer Award.
