Dr Andy Schreier received the BEng and MEng degrees in Communication Engineering from the University of Applied Telecommunication Sciences, Leipzig, Germany in 2013 and 2015, respectively. He received a Doctorate in Engineering from the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany in 2019. His doctoral research project focused on non-linear optics for distributed sensing in silica and polymer fibres at the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing, Berlin, Germany.
In 2019, Andy joined the University of Oxford as a postdoctoral researcher working for the second phase of the EPSRC/UKNQTP Quantum Communication Hub (https://www.quantumcommshub.net/). His emphasis is on the development of beam steering systems combining classical communication channels with single photon links enabling quantum key distribution. Those steering systems are essential to enable in-room architectures combining fibre distribution and LiFi/WiFi to create future secure wireless systems.
Andy’s general research interests are in the areas of quantum key distribution, fibre optics for sensing and communication, access network topologies (covering radio to fibre), high speed RF engineering (covering antennas to circuits) and software development for real time applications.
