About

Dr. Matthew R. Foreman currently holds a Royal Society University Research Fellowship at Imperial College London, UK. Having graduated from Oxford University, where he was a member of Trinity College, in 2006 with a MPhys degree, he moved to the Photonics group at Imperial College London. Under the supervision of Prof. Peter Török, Matthew successfully completed his PhD entitled "Informational limits in optical polarimetry and vectorial imaging" in 2010, whereupon he was awarded an EPSRC PhD Plus fellowship for the continuation of his work on single molecule polarisation microscopy. In 2010 Matthew was further awarded a visiting lectureship at the National Yang Ming University in Taiwan, working within the Modern Optics Laboratory. After working on the European Union funded SURPASS project, Matthew secured an EPSRC Knowledge Transfer Secondment fellowship, whereupon he was based at the UK National Physical Laboratory within the Engineering Measurement Department, where his work focused on calibration and correction of optical instruments in surface metrology. From 2012 until late 2016 Matthew held positions in the Optical Theory Group (headed by Prof. Gerd Leuchs and Dr. Andrea Aiello) and the Nanophotonics and Biosensing Laboratory (run by Dr. Frank Vollmer) at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen, Germany. His work focused on various aspects of whispering gallery mode resonators for biosensing and nonlinear optical applications. During this time he was awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship for his work on hybrid plasmonic-photonic whispering gallery mode sensors. Matthew also held a visiting academic position at Imperial College London from 2012 to 2016, through which he conducted collaborative work on optical polarimetry and Brillouin microscopy.
