David Yevick received the Bachelor of Arts degree (A.B.) in physics from Harvard University in 1974, the Master and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Princeton University in 1975 and 1977, respectively and the Docent degree from the department of theoretical physics, University of Lund in 1985.
After two years at the institute for theoretical physics, Stony Brook, New York, Dr. Yevick joined the institute of optical research, Stockholm in 1979, the department of theoretical physics at the University of Lund in 1984 and the department of electrical engineering at Penn State University in 1986. From 1989 to 1999, he was a professor of electrical engineering at Queen's University.
Currently Dr. Yevick is professor of physics at the University of Waterloo. His work has centered on the numerical modeling of electric field propagation in guided-wave components and the theory of opto-electronic processes in III-V semiconductors. He has authored over 120 publications in refereed technical journals and has participated in the organization of many conferences in the integrated optics device modeling field. He was associate editor of the Journal of Lightwave Technology from 1990-1999, of Photonics Technology Letters from 1992-1994 and the Journal of the Optical Society of America from 1999.
Dr. Yevick is a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the American Physical Society and the Optical Society of America.
