Wenting Yi received the BEng degree in Electronic Information Engineering from Nanjing Forestry University, China, in 2017. The following September, she joined UCL to pursue an MSc in Wireless and Optical Communications. For her thesis, she worked with Prof Robert Killey on low-complexity heterodyne optical coherent transceivers. 

In September 2018, Wenting joined the Optical Networks Group at UCL as a PhD candidate. Under the supervision of Prof Robert Killey and Prof Polina Bayvel, she is currently working on coherent and direct detection optical transceivers for long-haul and short-reach links, focusing on advanced signal formats and digital signal processing.
