UMass Lowell Asst. Prof. Alkim Akyurtlu was recently named editor of the Antennas and Propagation Magazine, published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Society (IEEE).

The magazine focuses on exploring antenna theory, design and practice; propagation theories, effects and systems; and analytical and computational electromagnetics, scattering diffraction and radar cross sections. The magazine also delves into designing and measuring techniques and the applications of antennas and propagation in telecommunications and broadcasting.

Akyurtlu’s research explores computational electromagnetics, electromagnetic wave interaction, modeling electromagnetic systems, and micro-/nano-scale device modeling. She is also deputy director of the Center for Electomagnetic Materials and Optical Systems at UMass Lowell.
