Jesper Bevensee Jensen was born in the Copenhagen area in Denmark. He received his M.Sc. in Engineering degree from DTU in 2004 and his PhD in advanced modulation formats for optical communication systems also form DTU in 2008. He has since then worked on several research projet within optical access. His main research interests today is multicore fiber technologies, advanced modulation formats for optical interconnects, and coherent optical access networks employing low.cost lasers.
He views international and industry/academia collaboration as instrumental in meeting the challenges energy- and cost efficient optical networks for the future.
