Bruce Rae


Following his PhD Bruce spent a year as a post-doctoral researcher before moving to the Imaging Division of STMicroelectronics in Edinburgh as a senior analogue designer. Since then, he has progressed through the roles of technical manager and photonics pixel and silicon architecture team manager and is currently a photonics pixel architect. As technical manager and pixel team manager he managed many aspects of photonics sensor projects, from system specification and architecture, risk assessments, resource planning, managing timescales, through to execution, delivery and documentation.  In his current role as photonics pixel architect he works closely with project teams to define pixel requirements before steering the definition and evaluation of the process technology, pixel architecture and design. Pixels and pixel arrays are then delivered to the project team for integration. He works closely with design colleagues in both Edinburgh and Grenoble along with our technology team based at our fabrication facilities in Crolles, France.

He is currently a senior member of technical staff within ST which is a cross-site, cross-project role that includes knowledge sharing and technical training aspects, along with providing technical advice and analysis. This role requires a deep technical understanding of photonic sensors and the ability to clearly communicate this to a broad audience both internal and external to the company. As part of this role, he also acts as an industrial supervisor to a PhD student.
