Jian-Jun He received the Diplôme d’Etudes Approfondies and Ph.D. degrees in semiconductor optoelectronics from the University of Paris VI, Paris, France, in 1986 and 1989, respectively. From 1986 to 1989, he worked as a doctoral fellow at the Centre National d’Etudes des Télécommunications, Bagneux,France. From1989 to1993, he was a postdoctoral fellow and then a research associate with Technical University of Nova Scotia (now Dalhousie University), Halifax, Canada, where he worked on semiconductor nonlinear optical devices. He joined the Institute for Microstructural Sciences, National Research Council (NRC) of Canada, Ottawa, Canada in 1994 as a research associate, and later became a tenured Research Officer, working on semiconductor optoelectronic devices for dense-wavelength-division- multiplexing applications. In 2000, he co-founded Canadian photonics start-up company MetroPhotonics and served as the Chief Scientist. He joined the Department of Optical Engineering, Zhejiang University in 2006 as a Changjiang Chair Professor specially appointed by the Chinese Ministry of Education. His current interest is micro/nanostructure-based multifunctional integrated photonic devices for optical communications, biomedical sensing and environmental monitoring. He has published over 200 scientific papers and holds 20 US patents. He served as a Technical Program Chair of 2010 Asia Communication and Photonics Conference and Exhibition (ACP), General Chair of ACP 2011, and subcommittee chair and committee member of many other conferences. He is currently a Steering Committee member of Pacific-Rim Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO-PR) and a Topical Editor of Optics Letters. He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA) and a Fellow of the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE).
