Bio

Reza K. Amineh is currently an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, NYIT. Prior to NYIT, he was a principal scientist at the Department of Sensor Physics at Halliburton Co. He received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from McMaster University, Canada, in 2010. He was a post-doctoral fellow at University of Toronto and McMaster University, from 2012 to 2013 and from 2010 to 2012, respectively. He was a Ph.D. intern with the Advanced Technology Group, BlackBerry, in 2009. He has authored/co-authored over 65 journal and conference papers, and two book chapters. He contributed in more than 40 patent disclosures in applied electromagnetics while working at Halliburton Co and received several industrial awards. His research interests include applied electromagnetics with applications in imaging and sensing, antennas and microwave components design, and nondestructive testing among the others. Amineh was a recipient of the Banting Post-Doctoral Fellowship from the Government of Canada in 2012 and the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation (OMRI) Post-Doctoral Fellowship in 2010. During his Ph.D. program, he was awarded the McMaster Internal Prestige Scholarship Clifton W. Sherman for two consecutive years. He has co-authored an Honorable Mention Paper presented at the IEEE Symposium on Antennas and Propagation, and the International Union of Radio Science, in 2008. He has also co-authored a paper selected among the journal of Inverse Problems’ “Highlights Collection of 2010”. Amineh is a senior member of IEEE.
