Dr. Wojtek J. Bock received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering and the Ph.D. degree in Solid State Physics from the Warsaw University of Technology, Poland, in 1971 and 1980, respectively. Since 1989 he is a full professor of Electrical Engineering at the Université du Québec en Outaouais (UQO), Canada. Since 2003 Dr. Bock is Canada Research Chair Tier-I in Photonic Sensing Technologies and Director of the Photonics Research Center at UQO. He has recently been awarded an SPI-NSERC Senior Industrial Research Chair (for 5 years) in Photonic Sensing Technologies for Safety and Security Monitoring. His research interests include fiber optic sensors and devices, multisensor systems, and precise measurement systems of non electric quantities. His current research program centers around developing a variety of novel fiber-optic device solutions and sensing techniques with a view to acquiring better performing photonic sensing components, devices and systems for applications in sectors of national importance to Canada. He has authored and co-authored more than 400 scientific papers, patents and conference papers in the fields of fiber optics and metrology which have been cited about 3500 times. Dr. Bock is a Fellow of IEEE, and was Associated Editor of IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology and International Journal of Sensors. He was also Chairman of the International Optical Fiber Sensor Conference (OFS21) held in Ottawa in May 2011.
