Josue Parra Cetina

Research Fellow

Josué Amílcar Parra Cetina is a Research Fellow at CONNECT in Trinity College Dublin.

He received the MSc degree in Electronics and Telecommunications from the Scientific Research Institute of Further Education of Ensenada (CICESE), Ensenada, Baja California, México, in 2008, and the PhD degree in the RINCE Institute, Dublin City University, Dublin, Ireland, in 2014. From 2014 to 2016, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at Chalmers University of Technology, in Sweden. He worked on phase-sensitive amplification and all-optical signal processing as well as techniques to reduce Stimulated Brillouin Scattering in optical fibres. Since June 2017, he joined to TCD-CONNECT as a Marie Curie-EDGE postdoctoral research fellow.

His research interest include mode locked lasers and their applications in the optical networks, mainly all-optical clock recovery with quantum dash mode locked lasers, as well as optical time-division multiplexing (OTDM) systems. In addition, amplification using highly non-linear fibres, techniques to reduce stimulated Brillouin scattering in optical fibres, radio over fibre, optical fibre communications, Light-Fidelity (LiFi) systems and 3D printing of optical components.
