Bartek Kozicki

Antwerp, Belgium


I received the M.Sc. degree in electronics and telecommunications from the Technical University of Lodz, Lodz, Poland, in 2004. In years 2002-2003 I was with the Technical University of Denmark, COM. My work was dedicated to modeling of electro-absorption modulators and optical signal labeling. In years 2004-2008, I was pursuing his Ph.D. degree at the Osaka University, Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka, Japan. The topic of the doctoral dissertation was "Waveform Sampling-Based Optical Performance Monitoring of Phase-Modulated Signals". I subsequently did research on optical core network at NTT Network Innovation Laboratories in Yokosuka, Japan. 

Since January 2011 I have been in Bell Labs, access group working on network architecture and high-speed interconnects.
