Hakan Bagci received the B.S. degree in electrical and electronics engineering from the Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey, in 2001, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), Urbana, IL, USA, in 2003 and 2007, respectively, both in electrical and computer engineering. From June 1999 to July 2001, he was an Undergraduate Researcher with the Computational Electromagnetics Group, Bilkent University. From August 2001 to December 2006, he was a Research Assistant with the Center for Computational Electromagnetics and Electromagnetics Laboratory, UIUC. From January 2007 to August 2009, he was a Research Fellow with the Radiation Laboratory, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. Since August 2009, he has been with the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Thuwal, Saudi Arabia, where he is currently an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering. His research interests include various aspects of theoretical and applied computational electromagnetics with emphasis on well-conditioned frequency and time domain integral equation formulations and their discretization, hybrid time domain integral and differential equation solvers, accurate, stable, and efficient marching schemes for time domain solvers, stochastic characterization of electromagnetic field and wave interactions on complex geometries, and solution of 2- and 3-dimensional electromagnetic inverse scattering problem using signal processing techniques. He authored or coauthored more than 90 journal papers and more than 200 papers in conference proceedings.
Dr. Bagci was the recipient of the 2008 International Union of Radio Scientists (URSI) Young Scientist Award and 2004–2005 Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship from the Computational Science and Engineering Department, UIUC. His paper titled “Fast and Rigorous Analysis of EMC/EMI Phenomena on Electrically Large and Complex Structures Loaded With Coaxial Cables” was one of the three finalists (with honorable mention) for the 2008 Richard B. Schulz Best Transactions Paper Award given by the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society. He authored (as student) or coauthored (as student and advisor) 17 finalist/honorable mention papers in the student paper competitions at the 2005, 2008, 2010, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposiums and 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, and 2018 Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society Conferences. He is currently an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques, and IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine.
