Luiz Anet Neto received the Telecommunications Engineer degree and M.Sc. degree in Photonic Systems from Universidade Federal Fluminense, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2007 and 2009 respectively. He also holds a M.Sc. degree in Physics and Photonics from Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Télécommunications de Bretagne (ENSTB), Brest, France (2009). He was awarded with his Ph.D. degree by the Université de Limoges in 2012 after working as an R&D engineer at Orange Labs, Lannion, France. His doctoral work focused on DMT transmissions over PON. From 2013 to 2015, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at FOTON, focusing on optically filtered DIM/DD solutions for next generation PON and on tunable silicon-photonics based filters for optical signal processing purposes. From 2015 to 2020 he worked as a research engineer at Orange Labs where he mainly investigated functional split based radio access optical network interfaces for the following generation of mobile systems and network abstraction and orchestration solutions for the optical access. He is currently an associate professor at IMT Atlantique in the Optics Department. His research interests include advanced optical modulation schemes, digital signal processing techniques, WDM(A)/TDM(A)/FDM(A) solutions for next generation passive optical networks, all-optical signal processing, the optical xhaul and the impacts of virtualization and software defined networks on optical networks. In his spare time he likes tinkering with his raspberry pis, his 3D printer and his everything-but-reliable DIY home automation system.
