Costas Sarris received the PhD degree in electrical engineering and MSc 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 at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto. His research interests are in the area of computational electromagnetics, with emphasis on time-domain modeling, adaptive mesh refinement, enhanced stability and higher order methods.
He also works on physics-based wireless propagation models (with full-wave, asymptotic and hybrid techniques), uncertainty quantification and scientific machine learning.
Dr. Sarris was a recipient of the IEEE MTT-S Outstanding Young Engineer Award (2013), and the University of Toronto Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering Teaching Award (2021). He is the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques. He is also a Guest Editor for the IEEE Microwave Magazine’s special issue on machine learning for microwave engineering.
He was the TPC Chair of the 2015 IEEE AP-S International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and CNC/USNC Joint Meeting, the TPC Vice-Chair of the 2012 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium, and the Chair of the MTT-S Technical Committee on Field Theory and Numerical Electromagnetics (2018-2020).
He served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques from 2009 to 2013 and the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters from 2007 to 2009.
