Kyriacos Kalli is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. He received the B.Sc. (Hons) in Theoretical Physics (1988) and Ph.D. in Physics (1992) from the University of Kent, UK, where he studied linear and non-linear phenomena in optical fibres. In 1993 he was a visiting research scholar at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, USA, studying optical fibre sensors. From 1994 - 1996 he lectured and undertook research at the University of Kent into the use of fibre Bragg gratings in multiplexed sensor arrays and Raman spectroscopy. At the University of Cyprus (1996 onwards) he was engaged in research into integrated gas flow and gas sensors based on porous silicon micromachining, fluorescence spectroscopy, and non-destructive evaluation of semi-conductors. From 2001 he was a lecturer at the Higher Technical Institute, where he created and headed the Nanophotonics Research Laboratory. His research interests are in Bragg grating and optical fibre sensors, photonic switching devices, multiplexing of optical sensors and laser material interactions. Dr. Kalli is a member of the Institute of Physics (C.Phys.), Optical Society of America and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
