ONG researcher Dr Robert Maher has recently become a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Dr Maher, who has been with the ONG since August 2010, is currently working with the UNLOC project, focusing on the generation, detection and subsequent digital signal processing of high capacity spectrally shaped optical super-channels.

Professor Polina Bayvel said: "Dr Maher is an outstanding researcher who has made major contributions to the advancement of the field of optical communications, including the experimental application of digital signal processing techniques for optical burst switching and high-speed optical transmission systems. His work has had strong international impact, and has helped to consolidate and enhance the internationally leading position of the Optical Networks Group in this rapidly changing field."
