Dr. Robert Murray received an M.Phys in Photonics from the University of Manchester in 2010, before moving to Imperial College London (ICL) to study for a PhD under the supervision of Prof. Roy Taylor in the Femtosecond Optics Group. His doctoral research was comprised of two main themes: parametric wavelength conversion in photonic crystal fibres for high-power spectrally tunable visible light generation, and high-average power chirped pulse fibre amplifier systems. He was awarded his PhD in June 2015 and is now working as a research associate in the Femtosecond Optics Group (ICL). His current research interests include high-average power pulsed and CW fibre amplifier systems, optical parametric sources in the mid-IR and visible frequency doubled fibre-based systems for imaging applications in super-resolution microscopy. Robert has recently been awarded an Imperial College Research Fellowship, due to start in October 2018.
