Bio: Amol graduated from the Delhi College of Engineering, India, with a BEng in Electronics and Communications. He received an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship to pursue an MSc in Photonics from the Gent University, Belgium; VUB, Belgium and the University of St. Andrews, UK. During his time at St. Andrews, he worked on the analogues of black holes in optical fibers. In 2010 he received 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 in December 2013, 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 joined CUDOS at the University of Sydney in May 2015 to work on on-chip stimulated Brillouin scattering. His research areas of interest are laser physics, integrated optics, non-linear optics, ultrafast optics and microwave photonics.
