Prof. Yulia Semenova

Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin)

Biography: Yuliya Semenova received her Master in Electronic Engineering degree from the National University ‚ÄúLviv Polytechnic‚Äù (Ukraine) in 1992 and her Ph.D. in Physics from the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences in 1999. She is Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the Technological University Dublin, where she has been since 2001, and Director of Photonics Research Centre since 2019.

She has over 350 publications in the field of photonics with over 5500 citations to her work. She has given numerous invited talks and tutorials and supervised to completion 14 PhD graduates. She is an Associate Editor of IET Electronics Letters, Journal of Lightwave Technology, Sensors MDPI.

Her current research interests span both photonics and applications of photonic devices in engineering with a focus on fiber optics. Much of her work to date has been on improving of design and performance of optical fiber sensors with applications ranging from macro- to nanoscales. Some of the specific areas of her interests are: whispering gallery mode effects in microfiber resonators, plasmonic structures and photonic (liquid) crystal fiber sensors.

Research Interests: Engineering; photonics, optical fiber sensors
