The Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department welcomes new faculty member Dr. Edo Waks to the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland. Waks, a graduate of Stanford University, will join the ECE department as an assistant professor this fall.

”I am very pleased to have Edo join us as the latest addition to our faculty,” said ECE Chair Dr. Patrick O'Shea. "He is an outstanding individual, and will contribute greatly to the quality of our Department's research and education programs."

Waks is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford, working with Professor Jelena Vuckovic in the Ginzton Laboratory on nanophotonic implementations of quantum information processing. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Stanford while working with Professor Yoshihisa Yamamoto in the area of quantum optics and quantum information. Waks received his B.S. and M.S. from the Electrical Engineering Department at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Md.

His primary research interests are in the application of photonic crystals to quantum information processing, and as practical tools in optical telecommunication and sensing.

Waks is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Fellow and was a member of Tau Beta Pi, the engineering honor society, at Stanford. A fellowship grant from the Department of Central Intelligence funded his postdoctoral research. Outside of the lab and the classroom, Waks enjoys outdoor activities including hiking, mountain biking, and rock climbing. He will begin his new position with the ECE Department this August.
