James van Howe is an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL. He received his B.A. in physics at University of Chicago in 2001, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in physics from Cornell University in 2005 and 2007, respectively. While at Cornell and Augustana, his research has focused on the development of ultrafast pulsed laser sources for biomedical imaging and novel techniques in optical signal processing. He was a visiting scientist at INRS-EMT in the summer of 2012 and 2016 for work on ultrafast optical signal processing. He is currently on professional leave from Augustana College (simultaneously enrolled in the MSc program) where his research at INRS-EMT involves applying classical telecom signal processing techniques to single and entangled photons for quantum information.
