Christos Christodoulou received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from North Carolina State University, NC, USA, in 1985. He served as a faculty member at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, from 1985 to 1998. In 1999, he joined the faculty of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the University of New Mexico, where he served as the Chair of the Department from 1999 to 2005. He is a Fellow Member of the IEEE and a Member of Commission B of USNC/URSI, Eta Kappa Nu, and the Electromagnetics Academy. He served as the General Chair of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society/URSI 1999 Symposium in Orlando, Florida, as the Cochair of the IEEE 2000 Symposium on Antennas and Propagation for Wireless Communications, in Waltham, and the Cotechnical Chair for the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society/URSI 2006 Symposium in Albuquerque. Currently, he is an Associate Editor for the AWPL, the International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering, and the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine. He was appointed as an IEEE AP-S Distinguished Lecturer (2007–2009) and elected as the President for the Albuquerque IEEE Section in 2008. He served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transaction on Antennas and Propagation for six years, as a Guest Editor for a special issue on Applications of Neural Networks in Electromagnetics in the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES) journal, and as the Coeditor of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation special issue on Synthesis and Optimization Techniques in Electromagnetics and Antenna System Design (March 2007). He has published about 300 papers in journals and conferences, has 12 book chapters, and has coauthored 4 books. His research interests are in the areas of modeling of electromagnetic systems, reconfigurable systems, machine learning applications in electromagnetics, and smart RF/photonic antennas.
