  • Gijo Augustin Gijo Augustin received a B.Sc. in electronics from Mahathma Gandhi University, India in 2000; a M.Sc. in industrial electronics from Bharathidasan University, India in 2002; and a Ph.D. in microwave engineering from Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT), India in 2009. He was a guest lecturer in electronics from 2003-2004 with the College of Applied Science, India. In 2004, he joined the Center for Research in Electromagnetics and Antennas (CUSAT) as a research scholar. He received research training from the Royal Military College of Canada as a research assistant in 2008. He was with the Department of Electrical Communication Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, from 2009 to 2011, as a research associate; he was involved in the development of ultrawideband antennas for microwave imaging systems. Since 2011, he has been a postdoctoral researcher with the National Institute of Scientific Research (INRS), Montreal, Canada. He has been actively involved in the analysis, design, fabrication, and testing of ultrawideband antennas, circular polarized ring array antennas, dual polarized multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) antennas, and metamaterial-based high gain antennas for advanced wireless communication systems. He has designed and developed a number of electronically reconfigurable ultrawideband antennas for next generation cognitive radio systems. He also serves INRS as an antenna laboratory supervisor and provides training for new international interns, masters, and Ph.D. students. He is also a committee member for doctoral exams of PhD students at INRS. Dr. Augustin has authored and coauthored more than 50 research papers in peer-reviewed journals and in national/international conference proceedings. Dr. Augustin has received various awards and recognitions, including senior research fellowship from the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Government of India (2007); the Young Scientist Award from the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), during the general assembly held at Chicago, IL, USA (2008); research associateship, Indian Institute of Science, India (2009); DS Kothari postdoctoral fellowship, University Grants Commission (UGC), government of India (2010); Fast Track Scheme for Young Scientists, Department of Science and Technology(DST), government of India (2011); and FQRNT postdoctoral fellowship from government of Canada (2011). He is a member of IEEE and serves as a reviewer of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation and IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters.
  • Tayeb Denidni Tayeb A. Denidni received an M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Laval University, Quebec City, QC, Canada, in 1990 and 1994, respectively. From 1994 to 2000, he was a professor with the engineering department at Universite du Quebec in Rimouski (UQAR), Rimouski, QC, Canada, where he founded the Telecommunications Laboratory. Since August 2000, he has been with the National Institute of Scientific Research (INRS), Montreal, QC, Canada. He founded the RF Laboratory at the Energy, Materials and Telecommunications (EMT) Center of INRS. He is leading one of the best research groups in antenna engineering with two research scientists, six Ph.D. students, and one MSc student. He served as a principal investigator on many research projects sponsored by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Canada Foundation for Innovation (FCI), and various other industries. His current research areas of interest include reconfigurable antennas using EBG and FSS structures, dielectric resonator antennas, metamaterial-based antennas, adaptive arrays, switched multibeam antenna arrays, ultrawideband antennas, and microwave and development for wireless communications systems. He has authored or coauthored more than 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals and more than 200 papers in conference proceedings on these topics. He has supervised more than 60 graduate students and researchers. Dr. Denidni is a Senior Member of IEEE. He served as an associate editor for many prestigious journals in antenna engineering, including IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation from 2008 to 2010 and IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters from 2005 to 2007. In 2012 and 2013, INRS awarded him the Outstanding Teaching and Achievement award. He served as a publicity chair for the IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference, Montreal, Sept. 2006. He served as an exhibition chair for ANTEM conference, Montreal, July 2006. He also serves as a reviewer for various journals: IEEE Trans. Ant. and Prop., IEEE Ant. and Wireless Prop. Let., IEEE MTT, IET Electronics Letters, and IET Microwave, Antennas and Propagation Proceedings. He is a member of the Scientific Committee of Centre de Recherche en Electronique Radiofrequence (CREER), and a member of the Scientific Committee of The research laboratory Telebec in Underground Communications.
