Yanne K. Chembo Biography

Yanne K. Chembo received in 2006 a PhD degree in photonics from the University of the Balearic Islands (Palma de Mallorca, Spain), and independently, a PhD degree in nonlinear dynamics from the University of Yaoundé I (Cameroon). In 2007 and 2008, he was a postdoctoral fellow with the FEMTO-ST Institute in Besançon, France. In 2009, he was a NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) Fellow at the Quantum Science and Technology Group of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Caltech (Pasadena, California, USA). From 2010 to 2016, he was a research scientist with CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) in France, with affiliation to the FEMTO-ST Institute where he founded and led the Microwave Photonics Group for Aerospace and Communication Engineering. In 2017, he joined the GeorgiaTech-CNRS International Joint Laboratory in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. He has co-authored more than 150 articles in refereed international journals and international conference proceedings. His research interests involve microwave photonics, optoelectronics, as well as the nonlinear, stochastic, and quantum dynamics of complex photonic systems. He was a member of the Committee for Regional Development of the International Commission for Optics (ICO) from 2014 to 2017. He is a senior member of IEEE and OSA, an associate editor for the OSA journal Optics Express, and the IEEE Photonics Society Africa Initiative Representative.
