Biography: Roberto Morandotti received a M.Sc. in Physics from the University of Genova (Italy) in 1993, and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Glasgow (Scotland) in 1999. From 1999 to 2001, he was with the Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel, and from 2002 to 2003, he was with the University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada, where he worked on the characterization of novel optical structures. In June 2003, he joined the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique-Centre Energie, Materiaux et Telecommunications (INRS-EMT), Universite du Quebec, Montreal, QC, Canada, where he has been a Full Professor since 2008. He is the author and coauthor of more than 350 papers in international scientific journals and conferences (including over 30 contributions to Physical Review Letters, Nature Photonics and Nature Communication). His research interests deal with the linear and nonlinear properties of various structures for integrated optics, with the study of novel thin film based technologies for optoelectronics applications as well as with nonlinear optics at unusual wavelengths. Dr. Morandotti is currently serving and/or has served as a Technical Committee Member and a Chair for several Optical Society of America (OSA), Lasers and Electro-Optics Society, IEEE and SPIE meetings. He is an E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellow (the most prestigious award for young scientists in Canada), a Fellow of the OSA, a Fellow of the Institute of Nanotechnology, and an elected member of the Sigma Xi (the Scientific Research Society).
