Professor Yanne Chembo has been promoted to the rank of Full Professor. Chembo holds appointments with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP).

Chembo joined the University of Maryland faculty in 2019. Previously, he was a Research Director at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). He has earned two Ph.D. degrees: the first in nonlinear dynamics from the University of Yaoundé I, Cameroon, and the second in photonics from the University of the Balearic Islands, Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Chembo’s research interests include nonlinear, quantum and stochastic phenomena in optoelectronics, microwave photonics and laser physics, as well as their applications to aerospace systems, optical communications, time-frequency, metrology, signal detection and sensors.

His research group, Chembo Lab, studies photonics systems for aerospace and communications engineering. His group explores photonic systems such as high-Q whispering-gallery mode resonators, time-delayed optoelectronic oscillators and optical fiber architectures. The study of this topics is applicable to various areas, including wireless communications, machine learning, quantum networks and fiber sensors.

Professor Chembo is a Fellow of both the Optical Society of America (OSA and the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE). He is also an elected member of the IEEE Photonics Society Board of Governors.
