Dr. Krishna Naishadham has M.S. (1982) from Syracuse University and Ph.D. (1987) from the University of Mississippi, both in Electrical Engineering (EE). He served as Professor of EE at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, from 1987 to 1990, and at Wright State University, Dayton, from 1990 to 1999. He taught courses in electromagnetics (EM), microwave circuits and antennas, and performed research on antenna design, computational EM and microwave characterization of novel electronic materials. From 2002-2007, he worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory as a Senior Research Scientist and performed research on radar target feature extraction using EM modeling and spectral estimation techniques. In September 2008, he joined Georgia Institute of Technology as a Principal Research Scientist, where he is working on novel antenna and sensor design, including multifunctional antennas, wearable antennas, and carbon nanotube based wearable sensors. Krishna also has a joint faculty appointment with the EE Department at Georgia Tech, and advises graduate students on their theses/dissertations. Krishna published four book chapters and over 130 papers in professional journals and conference proceedings on EM modeling, microwave design methods, and antennas, and is considered as a subject matter expert in these areas. He served IEEE as Member of the Technical Program Committee for Antennas and Propagation Symposium (1992-1995), and International Microwave Symposium (1994-2005). He is Chair of the IEEE Atlanta Section Joint Chapter of AP and MTT Societies.
