Currently, I am post-doctoral fellowship in Instituto de Telecomunicações (IT), University of Aveiro. I have engaged with Future Passive Optical Network (FutPON) and simulate transient characteristics of Peltier device and Thermo Electric Cooler (TEC). Thermal management and tunability is our close future achievement which is crucial in Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC). An analytical closed-form solution for the transient 1D P-N junction and a 2D numerical solution is developed till now and as a result of a good corporation with my colleagues, 3 papers are under review, two Journal with one conference paper are already accepted in a short period. Moreover, I have worked on microfluidic fabrication and modeling for photonic sensors to be used in environmental contamination detection. At the same time, I am developing new localization idea as an efficient remedy to manage high heat flux in integrated optoelectronics. At the same time, Handbook of “Basics of Thermal Modeling and Simulation” will be finished and submitted for publication.
