Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Welcome! I am a 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 many magnificent graduate students and researchers. Together, we've been conducting experimental research in the areas of ultrafast photonics, quantum communication, and optical sensing and metrology.
I was the Canada Research Chair in Photonic Technologies and Applications (2006-2012). 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 I was recently a co-chair of the Optical and Quantum Communication Symposium at the IEEE's Photonics North 2015 conference. I was elected Senior Member of the IEEE in 2006. I have been a topical editor of the Chinese Optics Letters since 2011.
