Karim Y. Kabalan received the B.S. degree in physics from the Lebanese University, Beirut, Lebanon, in 1979, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, USA, in 1983 and 1985, respectively. During the 1986 fall semester, he was a Visiting Assistant Professor of electrical and computer engineering at Syracuse University. In 1986, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the American University of Beirut in Lebanon, where currently he is a Professor and the Chairperson of the department. Professor Kabalan served as a member of many scientific committees and an Organizer of many special workshops such as the Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Simulation, Workshop on Antenna Technology: Antennas, Structures and Materials and Applications, International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing, and Advances in Computational Methods in Electromagnetics, Antenna Design, and Application. Kabalan is the recipient of the Lebanese University fellowship, the First Research Prize for 1988-1989 in engineering at the American University of Beirut, the 1994 IAEA Fellowship, and the 1995 IAEA Fellowship. He is also a Research Associate of the Lebanese Council for Scientific Research. His research interests are in the areas of modeling of electromagnetic systems, numerical computations of EM problems, reconfigurable systems, and smart RF/photonic antenna. He has published more than 200 papers in books, journals, and conferences.
