Dr. Hengky Chandrahalim is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the U.S. Air Force Institute of Technology, as well as the Faculty Director of the AFIT Nanofabrication & Characterization Facility. He received a B.Sc. degree from the Ohio State University, and M.Eng., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees from Cornell University, all in Electrical and Computer Engineering. After graduating from Cornell University in 2009, he joined the Micro and Nanosystems Laboratory at ETH Zurich as a postdoctoral fellow. Prior to joining AFIT, Dr. Chandrahalim had a joint appointment as a Research Fellow and Lecturer at the Biomedical Engineering and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science departments at the University of Michigan.

Dr. Chandrahalim is a lifetime member of the American Physical Society (APS), Optical Society (OSA), Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), member of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), and Society of American Military Engineers (SAME). He is an active reviewer of publications in optics & photonics, RF & microwave systems, acoustics, ultrasonics, frequency control, micro/nanosystems, and sensors & actuators. He has served as the technical program committee member for the Eurosensors 2010-2011, 2014, 2016-2019, IEEE Transducers 2019, IEEE Sensors 2012, 2014-2018, 2020, conferences, and chair for the Foundation of Nonlinear Optics 2019 (FoNLO’19) conference.
