Aldo Petosa received the B. Eng, M. Eng. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada, in 1989, 1991, and 1995, respectively. From 1990 to 1994, he carried out research at CAL Corporation on Microstrip Antennas for Cellular and Mobile Satellite Communication applications. In 1995, he joined the Communications Research Centre Canada, Ottawa, Canada, where he is presently heading the Subsystems unit of the RF Technologies group.

He has authored and co-authored over 180 Journal and Conference papers and is the author of the Dielectric Resonator Antenna Handbook (Norwood, MA, Artech House, 2007). His research interests include: Microstrip Antennas, Microwave Lenses, Dielectric Resonator Antennas, Reconfigurable Antennas, and Holographical techniques applied to antenna designs. Dr. Petosa is an Adjunct Professor with the Department of Electronics at Carleton University and served as the Canadian National Council Chair for URSI Commission B (2006-2012). He is on the Editorial Board of the International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering and an Associate Editor of the Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

Dr. Petosa is also a Senior Member of the IEEE and a member of the IEEE AP-Society Industry Initiatives Committee. Dr. Petosa was a recipient of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Commendation Certificate recognizing the exceptional performance of a reviewer for the Transactions for 2008.
