About the Author

Graham Reed is Professor of Optoelectronics and Head of Department, Engineering, at the University of Surrey in the UK. He graduated in 1983 with a First Class Honours degree in Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Subsequently he obtained a PhD in Integrated Optics in 1987. After a brief period as leader of the Electro-Optics Systems Group at ERA Technology Ltd, he joined the University of Surrey in 1989, where he established the Silicon Photonics group. As such this was one of the pioneering groups in silicon photonics, and has made a significant impact upon the state of the art. The group is currently the leading group in the UK in this field, and Professor Reed is acknowledged as the individual who initiated research on silicon photonic circuits and devices in the UK. The work has been carried out with collaborators from all around the world, both from academic and industrial institutions. Professor Reed has published extensively in the international scientific literature, has contributed presentations to numerous international conferences both as a submitting and an invited speaker, and has served on a variety of international committees.
