Canada Research Chair
in Photonic Technologies and Applications
Welcome! I am an associate professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (Photonics Group), at the University of Toronto. I teach and conduct research in optics and photonics. I am fortunate to work with the following magnificent graduate students and researchers: Yuemeng Chi, Jason Ng, Wing-Chau Ng, Dr. Bing Qi, Chris Sapiano, Peyman Sarrafi, Fei Ye, Lijun Zhang, Eric Zhu, and Dr. Wen Zhu. Together, we've been conducting experimental research in the areas of ultrafast photonics, quantum communication, and optical sensing and metrology.
I am the Canada Research Chair in Photonic Technologies and Applications (2006-2011). I was the winner of the Premier's Research Excellence Award in Ontario in 2003. I served as a technical committee member for the OSA's Optical Amplifier and Their Applications Conference, the Nonlinear Photonics conference, and the SPIE's Photonics North conference. I was elected Senior Member of the IEEE in 2006.
