Christine Tremblay

Christine Tremblay is a Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department of the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) since 2004.

She is the founding researcher and the head of the Laboratoire de technologies de réseaux, a high-speed WDM physical layer testbed developed at ÉTS in collaboration with Nortel (now Ciena) for evaluating advanced optical transmission technologies.

Her research interests are in the area of optical communication systems and networks, including the exploration of novel optical network architectures and fiber optic measurements for optical networks, as well as physical layer monitoring techniques for passive optical networks (PON).

Since 2009, she has been the co-instructor for the SC314 hands-on short course on fiber characterization at the OFC/NFOEC.

Between 1998 and 2004, she held senior R&D and technology management positions for several organizations. As Engineering Manager at EXFO and Director of Engineering at Roctest, she was responsible for the development of fiber optic test instruments and systems for the telecommunication and geotechnical markets, respectively.

She also served as product manager at Nortel Networks for high-speed wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) systems.
