Professor Deepak Gulabrai Uttamchandani FRSE

Professor of Microsystems Engineering, University of Strathclyde.

Professor Deepak Uttamchandani’s research has focused on photonic sensors and silicon micro-sensors, especially for healthcare sensing applications. His early research in tunable laser sensors led to the OCT equipment now used by high-street optometrists for mapping the retina during routine eye tests. Deepak is the first UK based Vice-President of IEEE Sensors Council and was elected a Fellow of the IEEE in 2019 for contributions to photonics-based sensing. He was awarded the Sensors Council Technical Achievement Awards for ‘research in photonics which has led to significant improvement in healthcare’.
