Etienne Perret (S’02–M’06–SM’13) received the Eng. Dipl. degree in electrical engineering from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Electronique, d’Electrotechnique, d’Informatique, d’Hydraulique, et des Télécommunications, Toulouse, France, 2002, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the Toulouse Institute of Technology, Toulouse, in 2002 and 2005, respectively. From 2005 to 2006, he held a post-doctoral position with the Institute of Fundamental Electronics, Orsay, France. Since 2006, he has been an Associate Professor of electrical engineering with the Grenoble INP – Institute of Engineering Univ. Grenoble Alpes, France. Since 2014, he has been a Junior Member with the Institut Universitaire de France, Paris, France, an institution that distinguishes professors for their research excellence, as evidenced by their international recognition. Since 2015, he has been an Appointed Member of the French National Council of Universities.
He has authored or co-authored over 180 technical conferences, letters and journal papers, and books and book chapters. He holds several patents. His works have generated about 2000 citations. His current research interests include electromagnetic modeling of passive devices for millimeter and submillimeter-wave applications, and wireless communications, especially RFID and chipless RFID, and also include advanced computer-aided design techniques based on the development of an automated codesign synthesis computational approach. Dr. Perret is a Technical Program Committee member of the IEEE International Conference on RFID. He was a recipient of the French Innovative Techniques for the Environment Award in 2013, the SEE/IEEE Leon Brillouin Award for his outstanding achievement in the identification of an object in an unknown environment using a chipless label or tag in 2016 and the IEEE MTT-S 2019 Outstanding Young Engineer Award. He was a Keynote Speaker and the Chairman of several international symposiums. He was named one of the MIT Technology Review’s French Innovator’s under 35 for his work on chipless RFID in 2013. Etienne Perret was awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant in 2017 for his project ScattererID.
