Chirag Patil

Chirag has joined the Photonics Packaging Group under the SPARKLE fellowship programme, which is co-funded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (EU) and Science Foundation Ireland (IE). Under the mentorship of Prof. Peter O’Brien, Chirag will develop and standardize methods for integrating photonics components and further incorporate this process into the PIXAPP pilot-line for seamless packaging solutions.

In 2020, Chirag obtained his PhD from Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen (Denmark).   During his PhD, he optimized and developed a robust process recipe to fabricate dispersion-engineered photonic-crystal waveguides on SOI platform. These devices were studied and characterized to understand intriguing properties of light.

After obtaining his Bachelors, Chirag was employed in the VLSI domain as a Senior Layout Design Engineer, where he engaged with memory compilers, analog circuits, and standard cells for different technology nodes. In academia, he has been actively involved in micro- and nano-fabrication activities at DTU Nanolab in Denmark and MC2 Chalmers in Sweden and has a cumulative experience of more than 4 years working in a cleanroom environment. 

In 2015, Chirag received his Erasmus Mundus Masters in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (EMM-Nano) joint degree awarded by KU Leuven (Belgium) and Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) with specialization in nanoelectronics.
In 2010, he completed his Bachelor in Electronics and Communication Engineering from JSS Academy of Technical Education, India.


Melissa Walsh

Melissa joined IPIC in January 2020 as the IPIC Training Programme Manager.   Melissa is responsible for the development and implementation of two of IPICs structured training programmes; PIADS (Centre for Doctoral Training) and Sparkle (fellowship programme, MSCA COFUND H2020).
