Dr. Prince Anandarajah received the B.Eng (Electronic Engineering) degree from University of Nigeria, Nsukka in 1992. Subsequently, he worked as an Instructor/Maintenance Engineer at the Nigerian College of Aviation Technology. On completing his M.Eng (1998), he joined the Radio and Optical Communications Group at DCU where he obtained his PhD degree (2003). He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher until 2006 and later as a Research Officer with the High Speed Devices and Systems centre which is part of the Rince institute (2007). He then held a DCU senior research fellow position until 2016 and is currently a lecturer with the School of Electronic Engineering at DCU. His main research interests include high-speed optical communications, photonic sensing, direct modulation techniques, generation and optimization of optical frequency combs and short optical pulses, spectrally efficient modulation formats and radio-over-fibre distribution systems. In 2016, he was presented with the DCU president’s research award for outstanding research achievements. He has published over 200 articles in internationally peer reviewed journals and conferences and is also a holder of 5 international patents, 2 of which have been licenced by industry. He is also a founder and a director of a spin-off company called Pilot Photonics. He is a senior member of the IEEE.
