Ozan joined the Nonlinear Optics group at UOttawa in 2021 as an Undergraduate student of Electrical Engineering (B.A.Sc.) and Physics (B.Sc) under the supervisory of Professor Ksenia Dolgaleva. He enjoys spending time in the lab characterizing samples via free space laser coupling. Ozan mainly works with Kaustubh Vyas and Daniel Espinosa in characterizing their designed samples. Ozan's main research goal is to design a III-V dispersion-engineered Photonic Crystal Waveguide (PhCW) for applications including Four Wave Mixing (FWM). He will also be taking on a project with NRC in Fall 2022 pertaining to Subwavelength Couplers.
When not working, Ozan enjoys spending time in Gatineau Park, taking advantage of the seasonal outdoor activities.
