Patrick LiKamWa received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Sheffield, in England, and is an Associate Professor of Optics and Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCF. He is currently pursuing research on the design, fabrication and testing of novel all-optical switching devices using III-V multi-quantum well semiconductors, and the integration of high-speed optical and optoelectronic devices to form monolithic integrated optical circuits for high data throughput optical networks.
