Leslie A. Rusch (S’91, M’94, M’00, F’10) received the B.S.E.E. (honors) degree from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, in 1980 and the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, in 1992 and 1994, respectively. In 1994 she joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Université Laval, Québec, QC, Canada, where she is currently a Full Professor performing research in wireless and optical communications. She spent two years as the manager of a group researching new wireless technologies at Intel Corp. from 2001 to 2002. Her optical communications research interests include spectrum sliced WDM using incoherent sources for passive optical networks, semiconductor and erbium-doped optical amplifiers and their dynamics, coherent optical detection for higher order modulation formats, radio over fiber, and optical pulse shaping for ultra-wide-band systems (UWB); in wireless communications her interests include high performance, reduced complexity receivers for ultra-wide-band systems employing optical processing, and exploiting UWB to support the health care industry via location finding, short distance data transmission, and body area networks.
