(S’01-M’10-SM’18) received the Bachelor of Science in electrical and computer engineering degree from the University of Iceland, Reykjavik, Iceland in 2003, and the Master of Science and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, in 2005 and 2010, respectively.

He is currently with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Advanced Radar Research Center (ARRC) at the University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK, where he is an associate professor. His current research is focused on reconfigurable RF and microwave hardware for agile communications, measurement, and radar systems. Furthermore, his research interests include spectral management schemes for cognitive radio architectures, advanced packaging utilizing heterogeneous integration techniques, and additive manufacturing of electromagnetic components.

Dr. Sigmarsson is a member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S), the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S), Eta Kappa Nu, and the International Microelectronics and Packaging Society (IMAPS). He was the recipient of the Best Paper Award of the IMAPS 2008 41st International Symposium on Microelectronics. In 2015 he was awarded the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) Young Investigator Program (YIP) to support his research on reconfigurable high-frequency components using phase-change materials. Dr. Sigmarsson was named the recipient of the Gerald Tuma Presidential Professorship in 2018 for meeting the highest standards of excellence in scholarship and teaching.
