Padraic Morrissey is a researcher at the Photonic Packaging Group in the Tyndall National Institute. He leads the group’s packaging activities in several EU research projects where integrated photonics is used in biomedical applications.  His work is mainly focused on the design of new optical and electrical packaging schemes for Si and InP based photonic systems.  He received his BSc. in Physics from University College Cork (UCC), Ireland in 2009. In 2014, he received is Ph.D in Physics from the Tyndall National Institute with a thesis entitled “Photonic Integrated Circuits for the Generation of Coherent Optical Signals”. Before joining the Photonic Packaging Group, he worked on PIC research and development in the Integrated Photonics Group at Tyndall.
