ARC DECRA Fellow

School of Physics and Astronomy

Monash University

Dr Haoran Ren is an ARC DECRA Fellow (Lecturer) at the School of Physics and Astronomy at Monash University. He joined Monash from June 2022, before that he held a Macquarie University Research Fellowship at Macquarie University, a Humboldt Research Fellowship at LMU Munich, and postdoc at RMIT University. He got a PhD from Swinburne University of Technology in 2017. His nanophotonic research seeks to uncover the underlying physics in multi-dimensional light manipulation and structured light-matter interactions. He has broad research interests including structured light imaging, meta-optics, resonant photonics, quantum photonics, near-field and on-chip photonics, and fibre optics. His group aims to develop advanced optical materials and nanotechnology to unleash the full potential of light for optical and quantum information processing.

Dr Ren holds a Honorary Research Fellow position at the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at Macquarie University. He is an Associate Investigator for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Transformative Meta-Optical Systems (TMOS) and a member of APL Photonics Early Career Editorial Advisory Board. He was awarded the 2022 ANZOS Geoff Opat Early Career Researcher Prize, the 2017 Victoria Fellowship, and the 2016 Chinese Government Prize for Outstanding Self-financed Students Abroad (the Special Prize awarded to only ten worldwide recipients). His research has been featured by 2022 Emerging Leaders in Journal of Optics and 2022 MQ Research Spotlight.
