Yohannes Abate is the Susan Dasher and Charles Dasher MD Professor of Physics at the University of Georgia. Abate’s condensed matter physics research interests include fundamental nanoscale physical phenomena and interactions in nano- and quantum- materials. His group implements various quantum-optics and nano-optics spectroscopy and imaging techniques with diffraction unlimited spatial resolution. His awards include NSF Career Award (2016), Scialog Collaborative Innovative Award, Research Corporation for Science Advancement (2015), Most Valuable Professor, California State University, Long Beach (2014), Luis Alvarez Award for Best Experimental Research (American Physical Society CA Section) (2008) and The 2000 International Publication Award (University of the Philippines, Diliman) (2000). Professor Abate joined the University of Georgia (UGA) as an associate professor of physics in August 2017. He received BSc (physics) degree at Addis Ababa University, MS (physics) at the University of the Philippines, Diliman and PhD in Physics at the University of Iowa. From 2006-2009 he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In 2009 he was a visiting scientist at the Max-Planck-Institut für Biochemie, Martinsried, Germany. Before joining UGA faculty, he was a member of the faculty (2014-2017) at Georgia State University and (2009-2014) California State University.
