Dr. Marcus Dahlem received his Licenciatura degree (BS + Masters) in Applied Physics (Optoelectronics and Lasers) from the University of Porto, Portugal, in 2000. He earned his MS and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2005 and 2011 respectively, working in the Optics and Quantum Electronics group at the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE), under the supervision of Professor Erich P. Ippen.
From 1999 to 2002, he worked as a laboratory instructor in the Physics Department at the University of Porto, and at the Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering of Porto (INESC Porto). In 2003 and 2005 he served as a teaching assistant in EECS at MIT, and between 2003 and 2011 he worked as a research assistant at the MIT RLE. During the summer and fall of 2008, he worked at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory, in the Exploratory Photonics group.
