Martin Skënderas (11-07-1993) is a PhD student at the Department of Photonics and Applied Physics (TONA) of the Faculty of Engineering (IR) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). He is part of the Brussels Photonics (B-PHOT) research group, where his main research interests are nonlinear dynamics in semiconductor lasers on InP chips and fiber Bragg granting (FBG) sensing. In this way, he hopes to contribute in developing highly sensitive and miniaturized FBG interrogation systems for ultrasensitive sensing applications. Martin achieved a Bachelors and Master of Science degree in Physics in 2014 and 2016 from the University of Tirana. In 2019 he graduated from the European Master of Science in Photonics (EMSP) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Universiteit Gent.
