Professor Rob Eason is part of the Institute for Life Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Robert Eason is a Professor in the ORC and is the Associate Dean (Research) for the Faculty of Physical Sciences and Engineering. He has research interests that span optical and nonlinear optical materials, laser-material interactions, the growth and characterisation of optical thin films grown by pulsed laser deposition, (PLD), optical waveguides and femtosecond laser technology and applications, particularly in the area of direct laser printing. He has been in the ORC since 1989, and was appointed as a Professor of Optoelectronics in 1999. Professor Eason has a high productivity in research and has also been actively involved on the teaching side for the past 25 years. He has a high level of visibility both nationally and internationally. His research group consists of five research fellows and four PhD students and he has served on many national and international committees (CLEO, CLEO-Europe, EPSRC Physics College, IOP, EU programmes) and publishes extensively in optical, materials and laser journals. To date he has more than 300 papers and 200 conference publications. In 1999 Professor Eason received the Royal Society Millennium Award, for the Public Understanding of Science.
