Sadasiva M. Rao
Sadasiva M. Rao received the Bachelors degree in electrical communication engineering from Osmania University in 1974, Masters degree in microwave engineering from Indian Institute of Sciences in 1976, and Ph.D. degree with specialization in electromagnetic theory from University of Mississippi in 1980. Dr.Rao served as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Rochester Institute of Technology from 1980 to 1985, Senior Scientist at Osmania University from 1985 to 1987, and currently, as a Professor in the Electrical Engineering Department, Auburn University. He also held visiting Professorships at University of Houston, Osmania University, and Indian Institute of Science. Dr. Rao worked extensively in the area of numerical modeling techniques as applied to Electromagnetic/Acoustic Scattering. He and his team at the University of Mississippi, were the original researchers to develop the planar triangular patch model and to solve the problem of EM scattering by arbitrary shaped conducting bodies. For this work, he received the best paper award for the period 1979 - 1981 from SUMMA Foundation. He published/presented over 150 papers in international journals/conferences. For his contributions in numerical electromagnetic problems, he was awarded the status of Fellow of IEEE. Further, he was recognized as a HIGHLY CITED RESEARCHER by Thomson ISI in 2001. Dr.~Rao's research interests are in the area of numerical methods applied to antennas and scattering.
