Cleitus Antony has more than 15 years’ experimental research experience in high speed optical communication systems. He received his B.E. degree in electrical engineering and his M.Sc. degree in physics from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, India, and the Ph.D. degree in physics from the Photonics Systems Group, Tyndall National Institute.
From 2001 to 2006, he was with Opnext Japan, Inc., Yokohama, Japan, and was involved in the design and development of 10Gb/s Ethernet fiber-optic transceivers. During his Ph.D. degree at Tyndall, he was involved in developing novel burst-mode transmission techniques for advanced high-speed fibre to the home networks.
He is currently a Staff Researcher with the Photonics Systems Group, Tyndall National Institute, where his current research activities include exploiting machine learning techniques to advance next generation optical access networks. He holds five patents and has authored more than 40 peer-reviewed publications.
