Wojtek J. Bock

Dr. Wojtek J. Bock received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Solid State Physics from the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, in 1971 and 1980, respectively. Since 1989 he is a full professor of Electrical Engineering at the Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO), Canada. From 2003 to 2016 for two consecutive mandates Dr. Bock was Canada Research Chair Tier-I in Photonic Sensing Technologies. Now he is a Senior SPI/NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Photonic Sensing Technologies for Safety and Security Monitoring and Director of the Photonics Research Center at UQO.

His research interests include fiber optic sensors and devices, multisensor systems, and precise measurement systems of non electric quantities. His current research program centers around developing a variety of novel fiber-optic device solutions and sensing techniques with a view to acquiring better performing photonic sensing components, devices and systems for applications in sectors of national importance to Canada. He has authored and co-authored more than 380 scientific papers, patents and conference papers in the fields of fiber optics and metrology which have been cited about 3300 times (h index 27).

Dr. Bock is a Fellow of IEEE, was an Associated Editor of IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology (2006-2014) and is currently an AE of International Journal of Sensors. He was also Chairman of the International Optical Fiber Sensor Conference (OFS21) held in Ottawa in May 2011, and sits on an International Steering Committee of the OFS Conference.
