Amol is an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA) Fellow in the School of Physics at the University of Sydney. He graduated from the Delhi College of Engineering, India, with a BEng in Electronics and Communications. He then received an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship to pursue an MSc in Photonics from the Gent University, Belgium; VUB, Belgium and the University of St. Andrews, UK. At St. Andrews, he worked on the analogues of black holes in optical fibers. Following which, he was awarded an EPSRC scholarship to carry out his doctoral research at the Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC), University of Southampton, UK. During the course of his PhD, he developed ultrafast waveguide laser sources with repetition rates of up to 15 GHz for applications in non-linear microscopy and optical frequency metrology. After graduating, he received an EPSRC doctoral prize fellowship to work on power-scaling of mode-locked waveguide lasers and using graphene in pulsed laser systems at the ORC. He joined the school of Physics in May 2015. For his DECRA project, he is developing novel on-chip frequency combs . He has more than 90 publications including 29 Journal papers and 5 post-deadline presentations. He serves on the Technical Program Committee of CLEO USA , ACP , LAOP , Photonics , SPIE Photonics Europe and SPIE Optics and Photonics . He is the 2018 recipient of the OSA's Ivan P. Kaminow Outstanding Early Career Professional Prize.
