“Theodore von Kármán, 1962 National Medal of Science recipient, is quoted as having said, ‘Scientists study the world as it is, engineers create the world that never has been.’ ERVA is an opportunity for the community to imagine the world that never has been.”
Edl Schamiloglu earned his bachelor’s degree from the Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics Department at Columbia University, his master’s degree in plasma physics from Columbia University, and his doctoral degree in engineering, with a minor in mathematics, from Cornell University. He joined the University of New Mexico as an assistant professor in 1988 and is currently the distinguished professor of electrical and computer engineering and associate dean for research and innovation in the School of Engineering. He is also the special assistant to the provost for laboratory relations. Schamiloglu has lectured at the U.S. Particle Accelerator School (Harvard University) and at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. With R.J. Barker, he coedited Advances in High Power Microwave Sources and Technologies (IEEE Press/Wiley, New York, NY, 2001), and, with J. Benford and J. Swegle, he coauthored High Power Microwaves, 3rd Ed. (CRC Press, Boca Raton, FL, 2016).
He is currently coediting Advances in High Power Microwave Sources and Technologies using Metamaterials (with J.W. Luginsland, J.A. Marshall, and A. Nachman), which will be published in 2021 by IEEE Press/Wiley, New York, NY. He has coauthored more than 165 refereed journal papers, more than 265 reviewed conference papers and he holds 8 patents. His publications have been cited more than 7,500 times. His h-index is 37 and his i10-index is 134. He has been primary investigator for more than $50 million in contracts and grants at UNM. He is a fellow of the IEEE and a fellow of the American Physical Society. He has received numerous awards, most recently the 2019 Inaugural IEEE NPSS Magne “Kris” Kristiansen Award for outstanding contributions in experimental nuclear and plasma science.
