David Hagan received his PhD degree in Physics at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland In 1985. He is a Professor of Optics and Photonics and Associate Dean for Academic Programs of the College of Optics and Photonics. He was the founding Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Optical Materials Express, and is currently Executive Editor-in-Chief of Chinese Optics Letters.  His current research interests include techniques for nonlinear optical materials characterization, optical power limiting and switching, and methods for enhancement of optical nonlinearities.

Dr. Hagan's Resarcher ID is  H-2204-2011
