Alexander G. Schuchinsky (M’97–SM’05) received the M.Sc. degree in radiophysics from Rostov State University, Rostov-on-Don, Russia, in 1973, the Ph.D. degree in radiophysics from the Leningrad Electrotechnical Institute, Leningrad, Russia, in 1983, respectively, and the title of Senior Research Scientist in 1988. From 1973 to 1994, he was with the Microwave Electrodynamics Laboratory, Rostov State University, where he was the Leading Scientist. From 1994 to 2002, he was with Deltec-Telesystems New Zealand. Since 2002, he has been a Reader with the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Queen’s University Belfast, Belfast, U.K. He has authored or coauthored over 130 papers in major Journal and Conference Proceedings. He is a member of the Editorial Board of Metamaterials.
He holds three U.S. patents. His current research interests include numerical–analytical and physics-based modeling techniques, microwave and optical phenomena in complex media, metamaterials, periodic structures with linear and nonlinear inclusions, electromagnetic characterization and measurements of materials, and microwave applications of novel materials. Dr. Schuchinsky is a member of the European Physical Society. He served as a chair of the Steering Committee of the International Congress on Advanced Electromagnetic Materials in Microwaves and Optics (Metamaterials’2007).
