Callum Deakin was awarded an MSci in Physics from Imperial College London in 2017 and joined the UCL-Cambridge IPES CDT soon after, completing his MRes in 2018. Research projects during his MRes included the development of perovskite-GaN hybrid materials for photonic applications and a study into the potential of beam steering switches for multicore fibres.

In October 2018 he joined the Optical Networks Group at UCL as a PhD student. He is currently working on optical frequency combs for data conversion and optical signal processing under the supervision of Dr Zhixin Liu.
