Professor Eggleton is a leading physicist in integrated nanophotonics and nonlinear optical physics and has made seminal contributions to the fields of optics, photonics and optical communications technology.

Before serving as the Director of The University of Sydney Nano Institute and Co-Director of the NSW Smart Sensing Network (NSSN), Professor Eggleton was the founding Director of the Institute of Photonics and Optical Science (IPOS) at the University of Sydney. He was previously an ARC Laureate Fellow and an ARC Federation Fellow twice. In addition, he was the founding Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Ultrahigh bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems (CUDOS) from 2003-2017.

During nearly 30 years of doing research, he has made significant advances in nonlinear optics, waveguides, soliton physics, and fundamentals and applications of slow light. He has also made important contributions to optical communications technology with applications to ultrafast and ultra-broadband and energy efficient information signal processing devices that are chip-based.
