Biography

Mohammad-Reza Tofighi holds a B.S. degree from Sharif University of Technology, Iran (1989), an M.S. degree from Iran University of Science and Technology (1993), and a Ph.D. degree from Drexel University (2001), all in Electrical Engineering. From 2001 to 2004, he was a post-doctoral associate and a research professor at Drexel. Since 2004, he has been with the Pennsylvania State University, Harrisburg, the Capital College, as a member of electrical engineering faculty, where he has taught a variety of courses on RF and microwave, electromagnetics, antennas, and communication systems. Dr. Tofighi’s main research interest for over 20 years has been on medical/biological applications of RF and microwave including wireless implants, microwave radiometry and imaging, biomedical antennas, interaction of microwave with tissues, and permittivity measurement using time and frequency domain methods. Dr. Tofighi’s main professional affiliation is with the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S). He has served as a chair (2009-2013) of the MTT-10 (now MTT-28, the technical committee on biological effects and medical applications of RF and microwave of the IEEE MTT-S), the Technical Program Committee (TPC) Co-Chair of 2018 IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS2018, Philadelphia), and the Vice-Chair of IEEE Region 2-Philadelphia Chapter of Antenna and Propagation/Microwave Theory and Techniques societies, AP/MTT (since 2019). For many years, he has been active in promoting the subject area of medical and biological applications of RF and Microwave within the MTT-S. He has served as a guest editor for special issues of IEEE Transactions MTT on the subject area (2009 and 2013). He is also one of the founding member (2012) of the IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology (IEEE J-ERM) and has served as an Associate Editor for that journal (2017-2019).
