Eduardo  Lugo

J. Eduardo Lugo received his PhD degree in physics from Morelos State University, Cuernavaca, Mor., Mexico, in 1998. His research involved experimental and theoretical studies of porous silicon nanostructures. In 1998, he was a professor in the Department of Physics at Morelos State University, where his research focused on porous silicon multilayers and molecular dynamics simulations. From 1999 to 2000, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and the Center for Future Health at the University of Rochester, Rochester, NY, working with biosensors and photonic bandgap materials based on nanostructures of silicon. In 2000, he was professor at the Center for Energy Research of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), where his work entailed research on the electro-optical properties of nanostructures and multilayer filters. From 2001 to 2004, he was at the Photonic Systems Group in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada, working with OE-VLSI systems. Currently, he is at the Visual Psychophysics and Perception Laboratory, School of Optometry, University of Montreal, where he is looking for new photonic applications, ranging from photonic crystals to near-infrared spectroscopy of the brain.
