Research Interests

Electromagnetics

Novel transmission line and waveguide structures for millimeter wave propagation; development of new analytical tools to analyze monostatic and bistatic scattering cross sections from a terrain covered with snow or vegetation; chiral materials and their possible uses for mm wave applications; determination of the material parameters by near field measurements; cavity backed aperture antennas. Work is analytical, numerical and experimental.
