Nathan Ida is a Distinguished Professor of electrical and computer engineering at The University of Akron in Akron, Ohio, USA. His current research interests are in the areas of numerical modeling of electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic wave propagation, theoretical issues in computation, nondestructive testing of materials at low and microwave frequencies as well as in communications, especially in low power remote control and wireless sensing. Dr. Ida has published extensively on electromagnetic field computation, parallel and vector algorithms and computation, nondestructive testing of materials, surface impedance boundary conditions and others. He has written four books, two on computation of electromagnetic fields a third on nondestructive testing with microwaves and a textbook on electromagnetics, now in its second edition. Dr. Ida is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Fellow of the American Society of Nondestructive Testing. Dr. Ida teaches electromagnetics, antenna theory and electromagnetic compatibility, sensing and actuation as well as computational methods and algorithms.
