Biography

Andreas Beling received the Diploma in physics (M.Sc.) from the University of Bonn, Germany, in 2000 and his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Technical University Berlin, Germany, in 2006. He was a staff scientist in the photonics division at the Heinrich-Hertz-Institut in Berlin in 2001-2006, a Research Associate at the University of Virginia in 2006-2008, and has two years of industry experience as a project manager working on coherent receivers for fiber optic communication systems. He returned to UVa in late 2010 as a Research Scientist and became Assistant Professor in 2013. Andreas Beling has authored or co-authored more than 130 technical papers, three book-chapters, and three patents. He has served on the technical program committees of the Optical Fiber Communication (OFC) Conference (2010−2012), the International Conference on Indium Phosphide and Related Materials (2014), the Microwave Photonics Conference (2015, 2016), and the Integrated Photonics Research (IPR) conference (2016). He was a Technical Program Subcommittee Chair at OFC in 2013 and at IPR in 2017. Since 2014 he is an Associate Editor of the IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology and he served as the Primary Guest Editor of the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics Special Issue on Optical Detectors in 2017. Dr. Beling is a senior member of the OSA and the IEEE.
