Juan Diego Ania Castanon
Juan Diego Ania Castañón studied at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain, where he was awarded his degree in physics in 1996. He obtained his Ph.D. degree at the Instituto de Estructura de la Materia, CSIC, and Universidad de Oviedo, Spain in 2000, for studies on dispersion management with fiber Bragg gratings in optical fibers. In 2001, he joined the Photonics Research Group at Aston University, UK. Over his stay at Aston University, he worked on different aspects of nonlinear fiber optics, with an emphasis on nonlinearity management in optical transmission systems and the exploitation of the Raman effect in diverse applications, being awarded an Advanced EPSRC Fellowship and developing the concept of ultralong Raman lasers in 2004. In 2007, he joined Instituto de Óptica, CSIC, in Madrid, where he coordinates the fiber optics group and continues his work in the field of nonlinear optics.
