Rodrigo Amezcua joined the College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL) and the Townes Laser Institute in February 2011 as an Assistant Research Professor. He obtained his PhD degree from the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at the University of Southampton. His Ph.D. was on the development of photonic crystal fibers. After completing his doctoral research, Rodrigo was employed as a post-doctoral researcher with Prof. Jonathan Knight at the University of Bath, UK. At the University of Bath, he developed novel photonic crystal fiber fabrication methods that lead to fibers with significantly improved optical properties. He has extensive experience in the design and fabrication of photonic crystal fibers for several applications; including fiber lasers, supercontinuum generation, nonlinear microscopy and sensing. Before joining CREOL, he worked at Powerlase Photonics, fabricating high-power diode pumped solid-state lasers.
