Julien Fatome was born in Charleville-Mézières, France, in 1978. After graduating from the engineer school ESIREM, he received the Master's degree in 2000 and the Ph.D. degree in physics for studies of ultra-short pulse propagation at 160-Gb/s in dispersion managed optical fiber lines in march 2005, from the University of Bourgogne, Dijon, France. In 2005, he became a Research Engineer in the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), Department of Physics, ICB, University of Bourgogne. He is currently carrying out research on nonlinear effects in optical fibers and ultrahigh bit rate optical communications, in particular on the all-optical control of light state of polarization. During the first term of 2015 and 2017, he was invited researcher at the University of Auckland. He has published over 200 contributions in peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, 3 book chapters and 4 patents. He has supervised 10 PhDs or postdocs. He is member of the 2017 CLEO US committee. He is currently leading the ERC starting grant PETAL project.
