Department of Electrical Engineering  
Professor Christine Tremblay is a specialist in optical communications. She joined the Department of Electrical Engineering in 2004 after more than 14 years of experience in the private sector, first as a Researcher at the National Optics Institute (INO) from 1991 to 1998, Engineering Manager at EXFO from 1998 to 2000, Product Manager (40G systems) at Nortel from 2000 to 2002, and R&D Director at Roctest from 2002 to 2003.

Her research interests include machine learning for optical networking applications, flexible coherent optical network design, performance monitoring, silicon photonics, as well as optical layer modeling and characterization.

Christine Tremblay is the Founder and Head of the Network Technology Laboratory, a world-class optical network infrastructure composed of 20 network nodes fully equipped WDM transmission systems, a 100G DP-QPSK/BPSK coherent system and recirculating loop, as well as a test bed for silicon photonics devices.

Member of the Optical Society of America (OSA), the IEEE Photonics Society and FRQNT Strategic Clusters STARaCom COPL, she has been co-instructor for short courses SC314 Hands-On Characterization for the Engineering of Long Haul and Metro Deployments and SC210 Hands-on Polarization-Related Measurements of the Optical Society of America at the Optical Fiber Communications (OFC) Conference.
