Bruno Romeira is a staff researcher at the Ultrafast Bio- and Nanophotonics group. His research cuts across several disciplines in applied physics and engineering, which include semiconductor physics, low-dimensional nanostructures, nanophotonics, and neuromorphic nanodevices. He leads several European and national projects in the nanophotonics and neuromorphic fields, including the H2020-FET-OPEN funded project “ChipAI” (Coordinator, 2019-2022), the Horizon Europe funded project “InsectNeuroNano” (Principal Investigator, 2023-), and the FCT-PT funded project “META-LED” (Coordinator, 2023-).
He received a PhD degree in physics (summa cum laude) and the title of European PhD from the University of the Algarve, Portugal, jointly with the University of Glasgow, U.K., and the University of Seville, Spain. He then held a Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Microwave Photonics Research Laboratory, University of Ottawa, Canada, and a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellowship at the Applied Physics Department and Institute for Photonic Integration of the Eindhoven University of Technology. He then joined the International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory (INL), Portugal, as a Marie Curie COFUND research fellow before becoming a staff researcher at INL. Bruno Romeira received the “Young Researchers Incentive Programme” Award from the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Portugal, 2009. He received the “2011 IEEE Photonics Society Graduate Student Fellowship” from the IEEE Photonics Society, USA. He also received the “Best PhD Thesis in Optics and photonics in Portugal in 2012” from the Portuguese Society of Optics and Photonics. He is a senior member of the OPTICA Society, USA, and a member of the IEEE and the IEEE Photonics Society, USA.
