Personal profile


Dr Prashant Kumar is a research fellow in the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology (CIMAM) at the University of Huddersfield.

Prashant graduated with a 5 Year Integrated Master's degree in Photonics in April 2010 from the `Centre of Excellence in Lasers and Optoelectronic Sciences' of Cochin University of Science and Technology, India. Thereafter on obtaining a research scholarship from the University of Huddersfield, he moved to UK for his doctoral studies under the supervision of Professor Xiangqian Jiang and Dr Haydn Martin. He worked on developing low-cost integrated optics based miniaturised metrology sensor for embedded metrology applications. He received his PhD degree in 2015 with a thesis titled “Design and development of an optical chip interferometer for high precision on-line surface measurement”.
