Dr Wei Cao 

Wei is a PhD student in the Silicon Photonics group at the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) in the University of Southampton. He is current developing high speed modulator using group IV material in the mid-infrared wavelength, under the supervision of Prof Goran Mashanovich and Prof Graham Reed. He obtained MSc of Photonics Technologies at the ORC in the University of Southampton, as the top student in the cohort. He accomplished BEng and MEng of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) in the Imperial College London.
