Larbi Talbi received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Laval University, Quebec City, QC, Canada, in 1989 and 1994, respectively. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship with the INRS-Telecommunications, Montreal, QC, Canada, within the Personal Communications Research Group, from 1994 to 1995, where he led projects supported by Bell Canada in Montreal, QC, Canada. From 1995 to 1998, Talbi served as an Assistant Professor at the Electronics Engineering Department, Riyadh College of Technology, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. From 1998 to 1999, Talbi served as an Invited Professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Laval University, Quebec City, QC, Canada. He has been serving, since 1999, as a Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Quebec in Outaouais/Ottawa region, QC, Canada, where he serves as the Ph.D. Program Chair in sciences and information technologies. His research activities include experimental characterization and modeling of UHF/EHF indoor radio propagation channels and the design of antennas and microwave circuits for wireless communication systems. Currently, Talbi is actively involved in major projects related to the deployment of wireless technologies in underground mines, mainly, experimental characterization of the underground mine channels using MIMO antennas at 60GHz, design of microwave and RF components using SIW technique and metamaterials, and antenna array for wireless applications.
