University of Surrey’s ATI announces prestigious Royal Society Research Fellowship
Friday 18 July 2008
The Advanced Technology Institute at the University of Surrey is delighted to announce that Dr. Goran Mashanovich has been awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship.
Goran Mashanovich obtained his Dipl. Ing. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade, Serbia. After working for 5 years as a Teaching and Research Assistant at the University of Belgrade, he joined the Photonics Group at the University of Surrey in 2000 where he read for his PhD. On being notified of his Fellowship, Goran commented: "I am absolutely delighted that my application has been successful. I will take a leading role in research in mid-infrared silicon photonics in the UK which has huge potential for creating a very positive impact on people’s lives, in fields such as environmental sensing, communications and bio-medicine. The Fellowship will give me an opportunity to work with an outstanding team of researchers from Surrey, UK, Europe, Singapore and North America, and to extend this network to other parts of the world. The main focus of the research will be to develop a library of fundamental silicon photonics devices for the mid-infrared with the aim of using them as building blocks for more complex structures such as environmental sensors for example."
Professor Ben Murdin, Associate Dean of Research at the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, said: "This Fellowship is very prestigious, and I am very proud to see such a promising young scientist flourishing here at the ATI, Surrey. This result follows the ATI’s success in also being awarded two such Fellowships last year."
