The OSA/SPIE Student Chapter at UCLA was founded by Ali Fard, Ahmet Coskun, Peter DeVore and others, and has had substantial help from Keisuke Goda with the IEEE Photonics Society.

Our constitution can be found here.

If you want to keep up with the chapter, you should join our mailing list.

Cejo Konuparamban Lonappan received his B.Tech degree in electronics and communication engineering from Model Engineering College (MEC) in 2004 and his M.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2012. He is currently working toward a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering at UCLA, where his research focuses on the field of real-time high throughput instruments and microwave photonics.

From 2006 to 2007, he was with Cypress Semiconductors, Bangalore, India, where he worked on post-silicon validation of four-phase locked loop (PLL) based clock generators. From 2007 to 2008, he was a lecturer in the Department of Electronics Engineering at MEC, where he started the graduate laboratory for research in VLSI and embedded systems. From 2009 to 2010, prior to joining UCLA for the masters program, he worked as a research project staff member in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay. Currently, his research interests include the design and development of real-time high throughput instruments and devices using microwave photonics, high-speed digital/analog/RF circuits, and integrated photonics for communication systems and biomedical applications. He is the recipient of the 2014 IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society Graduate Fellowship Award.
