Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert received a Ph.D. in Electromagnetics from MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts. His dissertation supervisor was the late Prof. Robert L. Kyhl, a veteran of the MIT Radiation Laboratory and a contributing author to the MIT Radiation Lab Series. For his M.S. degree, he studied with the late Prof. Ronold W. P. King, an eminent antenna authority, at Harvard University. Since graduating, he has pursued a great variety of design and analysis projects for both government and private industry. These include antennas for aircraft, submarines, terrestrial, and deep subterranean applications, at frequencies ranging from ULF through microwave. He has performed extensive radar scattering analyses for aircraft and missiles. He has pioneered the design and analysis of folded antennas in the MF band and is the author of a book about folded unipole antennas dealing with both the theory and applications.
