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). These programmes are being developed into prestigious training opportunities for the students and fellows to develop crucial well rounded skillsets, focused on research and transferrable skills highly desired in academia and industry that will enable them to progress into future photonics research leaders.

Melissa is an experienced project manager with more than 7 years industry experience successfully managing clinical trials and complex research projects internationally. In her work Melissa established a reputation as an excelling results focused team leader, consistently meeting stakeholder needs within budget and deadlines. Passionate about training and developing others she previously established training programmes for students (interactive inductions to clinical testing) and colleagues (clinical practice, trial development methods, regulatory, quality management and statistical analysis) and is always open and willing to help others to develop in any way she can through collaborations and sharing opportunities and ideas. 

Melissa completed her undergraduate degree in the Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials at Trinity College Dublin, during which she spent time at Imperial College London.

Samira Jastan

Samira joined the Centre for Advanced Photonics and Process Analysis (CAPPA) as a PIADS PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Liam O’ Faolain.   Samira will work on Narrow Linewidth Blue Laser Systems. This project is in collaboration between MTU, IPIC, Tyndall National Institute, University of Glasgow, and Queen’s University Belfast. This project has an industry partner, CSTG, a laser company in Scotland.

Narrow linewidth lasers in the blue wavelength range are vital for various applications such as underwater communications, medical diagnostics, and sensing areas. The high-performance spectrally pure lasers realised in this project will open up a new application area for IPIC. The aim of this project is to enhance the toolkit of on chip components available and using hybrid or heterogeneous integration to produce fully integrated stabilized lasers.
Samira received her B.Sc. in physics from the University of Tabriz, Iran. She then completed an M.Sc. in photonics at Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Science (IASBS). During her master’s degree, she was working on optical fiber sensors.
