Samir Trabelsi received his Licence de Physique and Maîtrise de Physique from l'Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France, in 1985 and 1987, respectively, and his Diplôme d'Etudes Approfondies and Ph. D. in Electronics from the Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse in 1988 and 1993, respectively. From 1994 to 1998 he was a visiting scientist (Electronics Engineer) with the Dielectrics Group at the Richard B. Russell Agricultural Research Center, US Department of Agriculture in Athens, Georgia. From 1998 to 2005, he was a Research Scientist with the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, The University of Georgia in Athens. At present, he is Research Electronics Engineer and Lead scientist of the Dielectrics Group, Quality and Safety Assessment Research Unit, ARS, USDA, in Athens, Georgia, and holds an adjunct Associate Research Scientist position with the Department of Biological and Agricultural, The University of Georgia. His research involves development of principles and calibration methods for microwave sensing devices for on-line nondestructive determination of bulk density and moisture content in granular and particulate materials and measurement and modeling of dielectric properties of water-containing materials at RF and microwave frequencies. He has published more than 190 technical papers and reports on these subjects and holds three patents. Dr. Trabelsi is an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, and for several years has served on the Technical Program Committee of the IEEE I2MTC and IEEE-APS International Conferences. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a member and a chartered physicist of the Institute of Physics (IOP). He is a member of Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society, and a member of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. Dr. Trabelsi is listed in Marquis Who’s Who in Science and Engineering.
