Biography

Costas Sarris received the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering and M.Sc. degree in applied mathematics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and the Diploma (with distinction) in electrical engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. He is currently a Professor and the Eugene V. Polistuk Chair in Electromagnetic Design in the Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto. His research interests are in the area of computational electromagnetics, with emphasis on high-order, multiscale/multiphysics numerical methods, modeling and optimization under stochastic uncertainty and parametric modeling and machine learning for electromagnetic problems. This work is driven by wireless communication, sensing and biomedical applications: radiowave propagation modeling in indoor, urban and terrestrial environments, capacitive sensing and imaging, wireless power transfer and biomedical hyperthermia.
