Biographical details

Sergio G. Leon-Saval was awarded his PhD by the University of Bath, UK, in 2006. In October 2007 he joined the Optical Fibre Technology Centre (OFTC). In 2009, he moved to the Institute of Photonics and Optical Science (IPOS), University of Sydney, Australia. Dr Leon-Saval has more than 10 years of experience in the area of photonic devices and astrophotonics; during that time he has been involved in several breakthroughs related to multimode photonics, optical fibre technology and astronomical instrumentation. He has direct experience on the fabrication, modelling, and development of optical devices and instrumentation, understanding both the theoretical and experimental aspects. Dr Leon-Saval has co-authored over 49 international refereed journals and more than 90 conference papers since 2004 with over 2080 citations, and a h-index of 23.
