David Selviah
Base: UK


David leads the Optical Devices and Systems Research Laboratory (which is a UK Technology Centre of Excellence and part of the Photonics Research Group) at University College London (UCL). His research is in the fields of optics, pattern recognition, adaptive signal processing, image processing and acoustics. He serves as technical expert at the British Standards Institute (BSi) setting standards for optical fibres, optical connectors and optical circuit boards. He also represents the UK as technical expert on the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards committees on optical fibres, optical connectors and optical circuit boards.

Prior to joining UCL, David worked at the University of Oxford and in industry, notably at Plessey where he designed, fabricated and characterised novel RF surface acoustic wave, SAW, correlators and frequency filters for pattern recognition and signal processing in pulse compression radar and secure communication systems.

He received his Ph.D. in Photonic Engineering from the University of Cambridge, UK.
