Professor Yanne Chembo has been elected a 2023 Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) for pioneering contributions to the understanding and application of complexity in time-delayed and spatially extended systems, encompassing experiments and models in both quantum and classical photonic domains. He was nominated by the APS Group on Statistical and Nonlinear Physics (GSNP).

Chembo has a joint appointment with Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP) and is currently the Director of IREAP.  He joined the University of Maryland faculty in 2019.

In addition, Chembo also holds Fellowships with the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) and the Optical Society of America (OSA), and he is an elected member of the IEEE Photonics Society (IPS) Board of Governors.  His research interests include nonlinear, quantum and stochastic phenomena in optoelectronics, microwave photonics, and laser physics, and applications to aerospace systems, optical communications, time-frequency metrology, signal detection and sensors.
