Dr. Senthil Murugan Ganapathy joined the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton in April 2005. He worked as a post-doctoral fellow from 2001 to 2005 at the University of Bordeaux, France and Toyota Technological Institute, Japan. He has received his M.Sc (Materials Science & Technology) from Pondicherry University (University First Rank Holder) in 1996 and Ph.D (Photonic Materials) in 2001 from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. His expertise and research interests range from photonic materials to photonic systems with current focus and interest on “Mid-IR Materials and Devices for Biomedical Sensing Applications” and “Novel Optical Microresonators”. He has recently established and run the major Mid-IR characterisation facility, worth more than £0.6M, which is unique for waveguide spectroscopy in the 2-14 μm spectral region. He has published more than 130 journal and conference papers (h-index: 21), 2 patents on new photonic glasses and editor of a book: “Photonic Glasses and Glass-Ceramics”. Apart from supervising Ph.D students he is also involved in MSc (Photonic Technologies) teaching for which he received Dean’s Award for 2012/2013 for “Outstanding Contributions in Teaching”. Dr. Senthil Ganapathy is Programme Chair of the “Young Scientists Forum” in the international conference ICOOPMA-14 and in the International Technical Committee of the International Conferences ICOOPMA and Indo-US International Workshop on Spectroscopy: Application to National Security, and also serves as a referee for several applied physics and optics journals.Publications are attributed to \"Murugan G S\"Researcher unique identifiers: Google scholar: Ganapathy Senthil Murugan ResearcherID: G-5271-2012
