A good researcher in our field needs to have an in-depth theoretical understanding and hands-on experimental skills. Being in the field of optoelectronics and optical communications for more than ten years, I have abundant knowledge and experience in both software (digital signal processing) and hardware (optical devices and circuits). I endeavor to bridge the research ideas in both physical hardware and advanced software to overcome the fundamental limits in the optical signal generation, detection, and processing.
