Pramod Kumar has received his M. Phil (Instrumentation Physics) Degree from Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, India in 2000, and PhD (Laser Physics and Nonlinear Optics) Degree from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, India in 2009. He worked as Assistant Professor in Delhi University, India in 2010. He has worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow (2010-2011) at Laboratoire Commun de Mtrologie LNE- CNAM, Paris, France. He worked as Research Associate (2011-2014) in Femtosecond Laser Laboratory, IISER Mohali, and Punjab, India. He has been with the University College Cork since Jan 2015, where he is currently Ultrafast Laser Physics research staff. His research interest is in the field of ultrafast non-linear photonics with covers various fundamental and applicative aspects, in particular understanding, manipulation and control of ultrashort pulses through Photonic Structures. In addition, He is very much interested to design and development of Ultra short and ultra fast laser pulses using Quantum Nanostructure based semiconductor laser via optical pumping.
