Prof. Christophe Caloz

Christophe Caloz, Professor, Canada Research Chair, Group Leader.

Christophe Caloz received the Diplôme d'Ingénieur en Électricité and the Ph.D. degree from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland, in 1995 and 2000, respectively. From 2001 to 2004, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Microwave Electronics Laboratory, University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA).

In June 2004, Dr. Caloz joined École Polytechnique of Montréal, where he is currently a Full Professor, the holder of a Canada Research Chair (CRC) Tier-I and the head of the Electromagnetics Research Group. He has recently accepted a special position as a Full Research Professor at KU Leuven, and he will join this university in January 2020.

Dr. Caloz has authored and co-authored over 750 technical conference, letter and journal papers, 17 books and book chapters, and he holds a dozen of patents. His works have generated over 25,000 citations (h-index=65), and he has been a Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Researcher.

He was a Member of the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) Technical Committees MTT-15 (Microwave Field Theory) and MTT-25 (RF Nanotechnology), a Speaker of the MTT-15 Speaker Bureau, the Chair of the Commission D (Electronics and Photonics) of the Canadian Union de Radio Science Internationale (URSI) and an MTT-S representative at the IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC). In 2009, he co-founded the company ScisWave (now Tembo Networks).

He received several awards, including the UCLA Chancellor’s Award for Post-doctoral Research in 2004, the MTT-S Outstanding Young Engineer Award in 2007, the E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship in 2013, the Prix Urgel-Archambault in 2013, the Killam Fellowship in 2016, and many best paper awards with his students at international conferences.

He has been an IEEE Fellow since 2010, an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer for the Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) since 2014, and a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering since 2016. He was an Associate Editor of the Transactions on Antennas and Propagation of AP-S in from 2015 to 2017. In 2014, Dr. Caloz was elected as a member of the Administrative Committee of AP-S. He is has been a Distinguished Adjunct Professor at King Abdulaziz University (KAU), Saudi Arabia, from May 2014 to November 2015.

His research interests include all fields of theoretical, computational and technological electromagnetics, with strong emphasis on emergent and multidisciplinary topics, such as metamaterials and metasurfaces, nanoelectromagnetics, space-time electrodynamics, thermal radiation management, exotic antenna systems and real-time radio/photonic processing.
