Profile Summary

Bhavin Shastri is an Assistant Professor of Engineering Physics at Queen’s University, Canada. He received the Honours B.Eng. (with distinction), M.Eng., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering (photonics) from McGill University, Canada, in 2005, 2007, and 2012, respectively.  He was an Associate Research Scholar (2016-2018) and a Banting and NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow (2012-2016) at Princeton University, USA. His research interests include nanophotonics, photonic integrated circuits, and neuromophic computing, with emphasis on applications such as information processing, nonlinear programming, and study of complex dynamical systems.

Dr. Shastri is a co-author of the book, Neuromorphic Photonics (Taylor & Francis, CRC Press). He is a recipient of the 2014 Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Government of Canada, the 2012 D. W. Ambridge Prize for the top graduating Ph.D. student, an IEEE Photonics Society 2011 Graduate Student Fellowship, a 2011 NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship, a 2011 SPIE Scholarship in Optics and Photonics, a 2008 NSERC Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship, and a 2007 Lorne Trottier Engineering Graduate Fellowship. He was the recipient of the Best Student Paper Awards at the 2010 IEEE Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems (MWSCAS), the 2004 IEEE Computer Society Lance Stafford Larson Outstanding Student Award, and the 2003 IEEE Canada Life Member Award.
