Bernhard Jakoby received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Vienna University of Technology (VUT), Vienna, Austria, in 1994. In 2001, he received a venia legendi for theoretical electrical engineering from the VUT. From 1991 to 1994, he was a Research Assistant with the Institute of General Electrical Engineering and Electronics, VUT. Subsequently, he was as an Erwin Schrödinger Fellow at the University of Ghent, Belgium, performing research on the electrodynamics of complex media. From 1996 to 1999, he held the positions of a Research Associate and, later, an Assistant Professor at the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, working in the field of microacoustic sensors. From 1999 to 2001, he was with the Automotive Electronics Division, Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany, where he was responsible for development projects in the field of automotive liquid sensors. In 2001, he joined the newly formed Industrial Sensor Systems Group, VUT, as an Associate Professor. In 2005, he was appointed Full Professor at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria, where he is now heading the Institute for Microelectronics. Dr. Jakoby has served on the Technical Program Committees of the IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium, Eurosensors, Transducers, and the IEEE Sensor Conference. He has also served a TPC Cochair and Local Chair for the IEEE Sensors Conference and is a Senior Member of the IEEE. His current research interests are focused in the field of liquid condition monitoring and physical sensors for liquids including resonant devices, microfluidics, and IR-sensor systems.
