Madeleine Glick received her Ph.D. in physics at Columbia University for research on electro-optic effects of GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells. After receiving her degree, she joined the Department of Physics, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) Lausanne, Switzerland, where she continued her research in electro-optic effects in GaAs and InP-based materials. From 1992 to 1996, she was a Research Associate with CERN, Geneva, Switzerland, as part of the Lightwave Links for Analogue Signal Transfer Project for the Large Hadron Collider. From 2002-2011 Madeleine was Principal Engineer at Intel (Intel Research Cambridge UK, Intel Research Pittsburgh) leading research on optical interconnects for computer systems. She has been adjunct professor at Carnegie Mellon University and a visiting scientist at the Cambridge University Computer Lab. From 2014-2016 she was the Industrial Liaison Officer of the NSF Engineering Center CIAN (Center for Integrated Access Networks).
Madeleine is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics, and a Senior Member of IEEE and OSA and is a Research Associate with the Open Networking Foundation. She has been on the organizing and technical program committees for several conferences including OFC, ECOC and Hot Interconnects and has served on several industrial advisory boards and roadmapping committees. She has been active in the MIT Microphotonics Consortium and a member of the board since 2010. Madeleine has been associate editor for the Journal of Optical Communications and Networking, and Photonics Technology Letters and on the Editorial Advisory Committee of OSA’s Optics and Photonics News. She has published over 100 refereed articles and conference proceedings. She is currently VP Finance and Administration of the IEEE Photonics Society.
