Bio: Alessandro Tuniz received his BSc Degree in Physics from the University of Trieste Italy in 2007 and his BSc (Honours) in Physics from the University of Sydney in 2008. His honours research at CUDOS investigated the interplay between two-photon absorption and Raman gain in highly nonlinear chalcogenide fibres. Alessandro then became one of pioneers in a newly formed team exploring fiber-based metamaterials, joining as a PhD student in 2009. His work on the design of an optically invisible fiber in 2010 received broad media attention, appearing in New Scientist and a number of international newspapers. He has published 7 refereed journal articles and 15 conference papers. He has won a number of awards, including the Australian Institute of Physics Postgraduate Award (2011), the Faculty of Science Postgraduate Research Prize for Outstanding Academic Achievement (2011), and the Wanda Henry Prize for best student presentation at the Australian Conference on Optical Fiber Technology (2010). He is a member of the Optical Society of America and Australian Optical Society.
