Personal Homepage:
Prof. dr. Alberto G. Curto joined the Photonics Research Group at Ghent University-imec in 2022. He obtained his BSc in Physics from the University of Salamanca (Spain) in 2007. Between 2008 and 2013, he worked towards his MSc and PhD in Photonics from ICFO, the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona. Alberto worked as a postdoctoral Marie Curie fellow at Stanford University (USA) from 2013 to 2016. He was appointed Assistant Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology in 2016. He received an NWO START-UP Grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research in 2018 and ERC Starting Grant from the European Research Council in 2020. In 2021 he was designated as OSA Senior Member of the Optical Society.
