Stijn Cuyvers received the BSc and MSc degree in electrical engineering from Ghent University, Belgium in 2016 and 2018 respectively. Supported by a B.A.E.F. fellowship, he obtained an additional MSc degree from Columbia University, New York, in May 2019. From September 2019 until April 2023, he worked as a Ph.D. researcher at the Photonics Research Group of Ghent University - imec. His research interests include heterogeneously integrated devices on silicon nitride photonic integrated circuits, such as mode-locked lasers and electrically pumped comb sources on-chip amongst others. During the fall of 2022, he was a research intern at Microsoft, Cambridge, UK, working on optical technology for the cloud.
