Robert Killey

Robert I. Killey received the B.Eng. degree in electronic and communications engineering from the University of Bristol, U.K., in 1992 and the M.Sc. degree from University College London (UCL) in 1994. He received the D.Phil. degree from the University of Oxford, U.K., in 1998. Following this, he joined the Optical Networks Group at UCL where he is currently Reader in Optical Communications. Dr Killey’s research interests include nonlinear fiber effects in WDM transmission systems, advanced modulation formats and digital signal processing. He has participated in a number of European projects (ePhoton/One, Nobel, BONE, ASTRON, IMPACT) and national projects (EPSRC UNLOC). He serves on the technical program committees of ECOC and OFC conferences, and was previously a TPC member of of the ACP and OECC conferences, and the IEEE LEOS Annual Meetings. He was an Associate Editor of the IEEE/OSA Journal of Optical Communications and Networking.

For JLT he is handling submissions on the followingtopics:

  • Digital signal processing for optical communications
  • Modulation formats
  • Fiber nonlinearity
  • Direct-detection and coherent transmission systems
  • Trasmission system modeling and design
