Allen W. Glisson (S’71–M’78–SM’88–F’02) received the B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Mississippi, University, in 1973, 1975, and 1978, respectively. In 1978, he joined the faculty of the University of Mississippi, where he is currently a Professor of electrical engineering. His current research interests include the development and application of numerical techniques for treating electromagnetic radiation and scattering problems, and modeling of dielectric resonators and dielectric resonator antennas.
He has been actively involved in the areas of numerical modeling of arbitrarily shaped bodies and bodies of revolution with surface integral-equation formulations. He has also served as a consultant to several different industrial organizations in the area of numerical modeling in electromagnetics. He has served as co-editor of the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society Journal. He has also served as an Associate Editor for Radio Science. Dr. Glisson is a member of Sigma Xi, Tau Beta Pi, Phi Kappa Phi, and Eta Kappa Nu. He is a member of several professional societies within the IEEE, Commission B of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), and the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society.
He was a U.S. delegate to the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th General Assemblies of URSI. Since 1984, he has been the associate editor for book reviews and abstracts for the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine. He is currently the editor-in-chief of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ANTENNAS AND PROPAGATION. He is currently a member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (IEEE AP-S) Administrative Committee and the IEEE Press Liaison Committee. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society. He has also served as the secretary of Commission B of the U.S. National Committee of URSI. He was the recipient of a Best Paper Award presented by the SUMMA Foundation. He twice received a citation for excellence in refereeing from the American Geophysical Union. He was selected as the Outstanding Engineering Faculty Member of the University of Mississippi in 1986 and 1996. He was also the recipient of the 1989 Ralph R. Teetor Educational Award.
