He has received the Young Medal and Prize by the Institute of Physics and the President’s Science Award, Singapore.

Nikolay is a fellow of the European and American Physical Societies, the Optical Society of America and the Institute of Physics. In addition, he is Fellow of the Royal Society and al member of the US National Academy of Engineering.

Nikolay’s Fellowship will last for five years and involves a number of visits to Texas A&M and building collaborations with faculty and students at the Institute for Quantum Science and Engineering at Texas A&M.

He said: “I am honoured to have received this Fellowship. It is clear evidence of the high international standing of research at Southampton’s Optoelectronics Research Centre and gives us access to collaborations and joint projects with one of the most influential photonics groups in the USA.”
