Dr Ali Masoudi 

Personal homepage

Ali Masoudi is a senior research fellow in the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) at University of Southampton with broad experience in distributed optical fibre sensing systems. In 2010, he obtained his MSc degree in Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) from the University of Southampton. In the same year, he was awarded a scholarship by the ORC to work on distributed optical sensing technology. He received his Ph.D. in 2014 for his work on distributed optical fibre dynamic strain sensors.

After receiving his PhD in 2014, Dr Masoudi designed and developed a portable DAS unit which he subsequently used in several industrial collaborations with entities such as Network Rail, BT, and Carbon trust. The DAS unit has also been used in a number of interdisciplinary collaborations with other research institutes such as National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR), and the University of Cambridge.

As the head of the distributed optical fibre sensing group at the ORC, he is currently working on a number of research grants including subsea earthquake monitoring (funded by NERC) and road traffic monitoring (funded by the Royal Society). 

Research

Research interests

His research interests include: Distributed optical fibre vibration sensors, distributed optical fibre temperature sensors, optical fibre shape sensing, optical fibre current and magnetic field sensors, optical fibre chemical and biological sensors.
