Robert Killey received the B.Eng. degree in Electronic and Communications Engineering from the University of Bristol, U.K., in 1992 and the M.Sc. degree in Microwaves and Optoelectronics from UCL, U.K., in 1994. He received the D.Phil. degree from the University of Oxford, U.K., in 1998. His doctoral work was on InGaAsP Fabry–Perot optical modulators and their applications in soliton communications, in collaboration with Alcatel Submarine Systems Ltd. in Greenwich, U.K. Following this, he was a Research Fellow with the Optical Networks Group at UCL and was appointed Lecturer at UCL in 2000.

Current research is on optical fibre transmission systems and optical networks, and includes:

  • Modelling and experimental investigation of the effects of fibre nonlinearity on high bit-rate WDM data transmission
  • Applications of digital signal processing for transmission impairment mitigation in high capacity optical communication systems
  • Implementation of high speed digital signal processing for optical communications using field programmable gate arrays
  • Analysis of wavelength routing in high-capacity optically amplified WDM networks
