About the Editors in Chief

David Andrews

David Andrews

David L. Andrews is Professor of Chemical Physics at the University of East Anglia, located in the cathedral city of Norwich in the United Kingdom. He heads a well-established research group pursuing the development and applications of fundamental, photon-based theory for widely ranging photonic and nanoscale processes, encompassing molecular chirality, multiphoton spectroscopy, nonlinear optics, quantum optics, energy transfer, optical nanomanipulation, intermolecular interactions, structured light and optical vortices. His current tally of research publications approaches 400 papers, alongside twenty books: he is the author of a widely adopted textbook on Lasers in Chemistry, edited volumes including Structured Light and its Applications, another on the Angular Momentum of Light, and he is co-author of an Introduction to Photon Science and Technology. The other main pillar of Andrews’s career is conference organisation; he has instigated and championed numerous conferences, including the Nanophotonics conference at Photonics Europe, which has now become the largest of its kind. He enjoys travel and is a widely known speaker, who has given invited lectures in twenty different countries around the world. Andrews is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Institute of Physics, the Optical Society of America, and SPIE – the international optics and photonics society.
