Dr. Mojgan Daneshmand was a Professor at the University of Alberta with a research focus on Radio Frequency (RF) Microsystems for Communication and Sensing. She received her B.Sc degree from Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) in 1999, the M.Sc degree from the University of Manitoba in 2001 and Ph.D degree from the University of Waterloo in 2006 all in Electrical Engineering. She has been Canada Research Chair Tier II 2008-2019 on RF sensing and communication for applications in energy systems, wireless and satellite payloads, and biomedical devices. Her group has pioneered works on non-contact microwave sensing and advanced satellite and wireless RF front end systems.
Dr. Daneshmand was the 2018 Martha Cook Piper Research Prize recipient at the University of Alberta for outstanding promise as a researcher. She also has received the 2016 IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society Lot Shafai Distinguished Mid-Career Award for her scientific contribution to the field of microwave communication and sensing technologies and being a role model for women in engineering. Her group has garnered a range of awards, including IEEE AP-S, IEEE IMS and CMC paper awards and recognitions.
Dr. Daneshmand was Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation and IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology (J-ERM). She was Associate Editor of IEEE Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering for 2014-2016. She was co-chair of the award winning IEEE Joint APS/MTTS Northern Canada Chapter. Dr. Daneshmand was also a member of the IEEE IMS conference Technical Program Review Committee (TPRC) and has been organizing members of ANTEM and IEEE AP-S Conferences.
