Yosef Pinhasi is the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering at the Ariel University of Samaria. He was born in Israel on May 3, 1961, received the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Tel-Aviv University, Israel in 1983, 1989 and 1995 respectively. He served as the head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering between the years 2004-2007. Since 1990 he is working in the field of electromagnetic radiation, investigating mechanisms of its excitation and generation in high power radiation sources like microwave and millimeter wave electron devices, free-electron lasers (FELs) and masers. He developed a unified coupled-mode theory of electromagnetic field excitation and propagation in the frequency domain, enabling study of wideband interactions of electromagnetic waves in media in the linear and non-linear (saturation) operation regimes. Prof. Pinhasi investigates utilization of electromagnetic waves in a wide range of frequencies for various applications such as communications, remote sensing and imaging. The space-frequency approach, which developed by him, is employed to study propagation of wide-band signals in absorptive and dispersive media in broadband communication links, and wireless indoor and outdoor networks as well as in remote sensing radars and radiative power beaming operating in the millimeter and Tera-Hertz regimes. He is a radio amateur (call sign: 4Z1VC), member of IEEE, American Radio Relay League, developing his own unique communication transceivers. He plays the piano and keyboards.
