Profile Summary

David Andrews leads nanophotonics and quantum electrodynamics research at UEA, where he has a Chair. The interests of his group include quantum and nonlinear optics, fundamental photonics, molecular fluorescence and energy transport, optical manipulation and switching, and optical vortices. He has over 390 research papers and 20 books to his name, including a widely adopted textbook on Lasers in Chemistry and, as co-editor and contributor, a volume entitled The Angular Momentum of Light. David was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry in 1988, and of the Institute of Physics in 1999, SPIE in 2005, and OSA in 2015. David has instigated and steered several conferences that are now well established, international meetings, including an annual Complex Light and Optical Forces conference in the States, and the biennial Nanophotonics conference in Europe, both now the largest of their kind. He has held two terms of office as Chair of the Molecular Spectroscopy Group, and he is now President-Elect of SPIE. David enjoys frequent travels, and many other interests including painting and the graphic arts: in addition to landscapes he has produced cover art for several of his books and journal covers.
