Ozoliņš is an Academician (foreign member) at the Latvian Academy of Science. He is also the Latvian Council of Science Expert in Committees: Engineering, Computer Science, and Physics. His research interests are in the areas of digital and photonic-assisted signal processing techniques, high-speed short-reach communications and devices, optical and photonic-wireless interconnects, and machine learning for optical network monitoring and Quality of Experience prediction.

In his professional career, docent (associate professor) O. Ozoliņš has been a guest researcher at III-V Lab (Nokia Bell Labs and Thales, France), Keysight Technologies (Böblingen Germany), DTU Fotonik (Technical University of Denmark, Denmark), IDLab (Ghent University – imec, Belgium), OFO (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden), and FOTON laboratory (University of Rennes 1, France). In total 265 days for external stays.

Docent (associate professor) O. Ozoliņš is coholder of several world records reported at conference post-deadline sessions: (1) on optical amplification free highest baud rate for 200 Gbps OOK transmitted with single integrated externally modulated laser at OFC2022, (2) on highest real-time duobinary transmission at ECOC2016, (3) on single-transmitter/single-receiver THz link (0.3-0.5 THz) with a record net data rate of 260 Gbps at IPC2016, (4) a first multigigabit throughput transmission of 9-µm QCL based FSO link in room-temperature with multilevel modulation formats at OFC2022. He is the author of around 222 international journal publications, conference contributions, invited talks/tutorials/keynote/lecture, patents, and book chapters (h index 21, citations 1502).
