John VolakisMohammed Ismail a prolific author and entrepreneur in the field of chip design and test, spent over 25 years in academia and industry in the US and Europe . He obtained his BS and MS from Cairo University, Egypt and His PhD from the University of Manitoba in 1983, all in electrical engineering. He is the Founder of the Ohio State University's (OSU) Analog VLSI Lab, one of the foremost research entities in the field of analog, mixed signal and RF integrated circuits. He also served on the Faculty of OSU's ElectroScience Lab. He held a Research Chair at the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) where he founded the RaMSiS (Radio and Mixed Signal Integrated Systems) Research Group there. He had visiting appointments in Finland (Aalto university), Norway (NTH and University of Oslo), the Netherlands (Twente University) and Japan (Tokyo Institute of Technology).
He Joined KUSTAR, the UAE in 2011, where he holds the ATIC Professor Chair and is Head of the ECE Department which exists on both KUSTAR's campuses in Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. He was the Director of the Sharjah Campus. He is also serving as Director of the Khalifa Semiconductor Research Center (KSRC) and Co-Director of the ATIC-SRC Center of Excellence on Energy Efficient Electronic systems (ACE4S) targeting self-powered chip sets for wireless sensing and monitoring, bio chips and power management solutions. His current research focuses on "self- healing" design techniques for CMOS RF and mm-wave ICs in deep nanometer nodes.
Dr.Ismail served as a Corporate Consultant to over 30 companies and is a Co-Founder of Micrys Inc., Columbus, Ohio, Spirea AB, Stockholm, Firstpass Technologies Inc., Dublin, Ohio and ANACAD-Egypt (now part of Mentor Graphics). He advised the work of over 50 Ph.D. students and of over 100 M.S. students. He authored or co-authored over 20 books and over 150 journal publications and has 8 US patents issued and several pending. He is the Founding Editor of the Springer Journal of Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal Processing and serves as the Journal's Editor-in-Chief. He served the IEEE in many editorial and administrative capacities. He is the Founder of the IEEE International Conference on Electronics, Circuits and Systems (ICECS), the flagship Region 8 Conference of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and a Co-Founder of the IEEE International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED). He received the US Presidential Young Investigator Award, the Ohio State Lumley Research Award four times, in 1992, 1997, 2002 and 2007 and the US Semiconductor Research Corporation's Inventor Recognition Award twice. He is a Fellow of IEEE.

John VolakisJohn L. Volakis obtained his Ph.D. degree from the Ohio State University in 1982 (advisors: Leon Peters, Jr. and W.D. Burnside). From 1982-1984 he was with Rockwell International, Aircraft Division (now Boeing Phantom Works), Lakewood, CA and during 1978- 1982 he was a Graduate Research Associate at the Ohio State University ElectroScience Laboratory. From January 2003 he is the Roy and Lois Chope Chair Professor of Engineering at the Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio and also serves as the Director of the ElectroScience Laboratory. Prior to moving to the Ohio State Univ, he was a Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Dept. at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. (1984-2003). He also served as the Director of the Radiation Laboratory from 1998 to 2000. Over the years, Dr. Volakis has carried out research in antennas, wireless communications and propagation, computational methods, electromagnetic compatibility and interference, design optimization, RF materials, multiphysics engineering, millimeter waves, terahertz systems, and medical sensing. He has authored eight books, over 350 journal papers, nearly 650 conference papers, and 23 book chapters. He has been listed by ISI as one among the top 250 most referenced authors (2004). He has served as the President of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (2004), the Vice Chair of USNC/URSI Commission B, the General Chair of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Symposium twice, the IEEE AP-S Distinguished Lecturer, the IEEE APS Fellows Committee Chair, and IEEE-wide Fellows Committee Member. He has received the University of Michigan College of Engineering Research Excellence Award (1993), the Scott Award from The Ohio State University College of Engineering for Outstanding Academic Achievement (2011), the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society C-T. Tai Teaching Excellence Award (2011) and most recently, the Distinguished Achievement Award (2014) from the IEEE Antennas & Propagation Society, one of the top career awards given to an individual once a year by IEEE.
