Masab Iqbal, an optical communications enthusiast from Karachi, Pakistan, completed his undergraduate studies in Electronic Engineering. He pursued a Master’s degree in Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors, and Networks through the prestigious Erasmus Mundus scholarship program. During his degree, he focused on machine learning techniques to address non-linearity in optical fibers while studying in Italy (TeCIP) and the UK (AiPT).

As an Early-Stage Researcher in his PhD in the REAL-NET project at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, he conducted research on secure and efficient optical networks, including point-to-multipoint connections in classical and quantum networks, in collaboration with Infinera, Portugal. Currently, he is exploring quantum communication at the Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (CTTC) with focus on continuous variable quantum key distribution. Masab’s research interests span optical communication, quantum communication, and network security.
