Hrishikesh Srinivas


Hrishikesh Srinivas is a postdoctoral researcher in the Photonic Systems Group at IPIC, Tyndall National Institute, where he works under the supervision of Dr Fatima Gunning on optical fibre amplifier technologies for space applications. His current research interests include optical communications, optical amplifier physics, and photonics. He is an early career member of the Optica, SPIE, ANZOS and IEEE professional societies, and a certified reviewer for Optica journals.
He received a B.E. degree in Photonic Engineering and a B.Sc. degree double major in Mathematics and Physical Science from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, NSW, Australia, in 2017, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, USA, in 2019 and 2023, respectively. During his doctoral studies, he worked on the modelling and optimization of erbium-doped fibre amplifiers towards efficient scaling of spatially multiplexed long-haul optical fibre communication systems, and was a participant in the inaugural Subsea Optical Fiber Communications International Summer School. He was a teaching assistant for the introductory Signal Processing and Linear Systems course in the Stanford Electrical Engineering Department. A UNSW Scientia scholar as an undergraduate, he was also awarded summer research scholarships in the School of Physics and the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, and was involved in the modelling of a novel liquid crystal-based optrode technology for the measurement of biopotentials.
