Dr Maria Chernysheva’s research background is in engineering, laser physics and nonlinear optics. She received her PhD in laser physics from Fibre Optics Research Center of the Russian Academy of sciences in 2014.
She was exploring and engineering novel ultrafast fibre laser configurations and amplification systems during H2020-Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship and Engineering for Development Research Fellowship from Royal Academy of Engineering at Aston University, UK, from 2014 to 2019. From the beginning of 2019, Dr Chernysheva has moved to Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technologies, Jena, Germany, where she established a Junior Research Group “Ultrafast fibre lasers”. Her current vision is moving towards ultrafast Mid-IR generation in all-fibre lasers for potential applications for medical diagnostics.
