Profile photo 
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

Name 
To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title 
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

Otto Muskens received his PhD in 2004 at the University of Utrecht and subsequently worked as a postdoctoral researcher at CNRS in Bordeaux, Philips Research Eindhoven and the AMOLF institute in Amsterdam. Since 2009 he leads the Integrated Nanophotonics Group in Southampton, where from 2012-2017 he held a prestigious EPSRC Early Career fellowship on the development of complex photonic networks for controlling light. He is an investigator in the Southampton Centre for Photonic Metamaterials and associated Program Grant and member of the Zepler Clean Room management committee. In 2016 he held the Debye visiting chair at the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands. His research has received >4500 citations (full record on Google Scholar) and >£3M of PI grants from EPRSC, Horizon 2020, Royal Society, Leverhulme Trust, and Dstl. Recent activities include editor at Optics Express, organisation of the Complex Nanophotonics Science Camp, top 1% peer reviewer at Publons and top 6% reviewer at EPSRC Peer Review college.

You can update this in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading and then ‘Curriculum and research description’, select ‘Add profile information’. In the dropdown menu, select - ‘About’.

Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.
