Amaria Javed

Postdoctoral Associate Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi
Education: MSc and MPhil Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad; PhD United Arab Emirates University, UAEU

Research Areas: Nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE), Solitons, Waveguides, all-optical data processing, quantum information processing

Amaria Javed received her Master’s in Physics from Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU), Islamabad, in 2012. Then she obtained her M.Phil degree in Physics from the same institute in 2015 with thesis research on Quantum entanglement between electronic spin and spatial states in graphene. She earned her Doctorate (PhD) in theoretical physics (nonlinear physics, more precisely) from United Arab Emirates University (UAEU) in 2021, and she became the first PhD graduate in the field of physics from UAEU. She has published her research in many prestigious journals. She has also presented her research at different international forums. She has been awarded the Golden visa (10-year residency) by the UAE government under the special talent category. She is actively involved in teaching undergraduate programs. Her PhD research focused on all-optical data communication through solitons in waveguide arrays. She tackled both fundamental and applied issues. She used different analytical and numerical techniques to solve nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLSE) and designed waveguide arrays that allow for proper data processing and, ultimately computing. She is also looking at the prospect of soliton scattering for quantum information processing. Before joining NYU Abu Dhabi, she worked on a research project on nonlinear dynamics at Khalifa University (KU) Abu Dhabi. Currently, she is a Postdoctoral Associate at “The Center for Quantum and Topological Systems” at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYU Abu Dhabi).
