Skevos Karpathakis is an engineer and PhD candidate at the University of Western Australia. His project contributes to the future of optical ground station networks in Australia by integrating optical communications systems into phase-and-amplitude-stabilised free-space laser ranges. Karpathakis’ work is conducted with the Astrophotonics group at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), where he was employed as an electronic engineer prior to commencing his PhD. Before joining ICRAR, Karpathakis worked in product development in the smart city space. He previously completed a Master of Professional Engineering at UWA and led a team of students to participate in the Formula SAE competition.
Project Title: Communications engineering, phase- and spatial-stabilisation system development (Embedded in Coherent Free-Space Optical Communications)
