Ronit Sohanpal was awarded an MSci degree in Physics at UCL in 2018, with his final project investigating multi-mode fibre applications in optical tweezers. After graduation he joined the UCL-Cambridge Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrated Photonic and Electronic Systems (IPES), completing his MRes degree in 2019. His research projects during the MRes include thermal sensitivity characterisation of multi-core fibre for data centre interconnections and the evaluation of coherent transmission technologies for 100Gbps passive optical networks.

In October 2019 he joined the Optical Networks Group at UCL as a MPhil/PhD student under the supervision of Dr Zhixin Liu. He is currently working on high performance frequency combs for RF signal processing and data centre interconnections.
