About Me

Krishna Coimbatore Balram - Lecturer in Photonic Quantum Engineering

The newest member of QET Labs at the University of Bristol, Krishna grew up in Delhi, India's historic capital city. Partly because of that, he has a lifelong affection for history and all things ancient.

He received his undergraduate degree in India and his postgraduate degrees in the United States. Krishna started as a lecturer at the University of Bristol this month (January 2017) for his third different academic system in as many decades.

His research interests are primarily in the field of nanoscale opto-electro-mechanical devices for information processing and sensing applications, with a particular interested in device fabrication. One of his main goals at CQP is to produce state of the art opto-electronic devices at the Bristol nano-fabrication facility.

Outside of lab, Krishna likes to play a variety of sports, from cricket to squash (although claims not to be very good at any of them). He also enjoys watching old BBC comedies, in particular Yes Minister and Blackadder. 

Krishna will be holding a welcome lecture on Thursday 26th January at 4pm in the Frank Lecture Theatre (HH Wills Physics Building) - all are invited to attend.

A very warm welcome to the team, Krishna!
