ADVISORY BOARD

ADVISORY BOARD

An external Advisory Board has been set up to guarantee and monitor the scientific quality of the PULSE project and the deliverables. It comprises leading scientists in the research domains of METASURFACES and PLASMA PHYSICS.

Advisory Board Members

Prof. GERRIT KROESEN is full professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology, a member of the research group for elementary processes in gas discharges and Senior Fellow at the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Bologna. He is a leading scientist in the field of plasma technology, with more than 200 papers (H-index 42) and 40 years of experience. During his career he has developed and employed experimental, diagnostic, theoretical and modeling approaches to investigate a wide range of plasma technological applications, among which: plasma etching, plasma deposition, environmental applications, plasma displays, dusty plasmas, EUV producing plasmas, EUV produced plasmas and medical applications.

Prof. NADER ENGHETA is the H. Nedwill Ramsey Professor at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, with affiliations in the Departments of Electrical and Systems Engineering, Physics and Astronomy, Bioengineering, and Materials Science and Engineering.  He received his BS degree from the University of Tehran, and his MS and Ph.D. degrees from Caltech.  His current research activities span a broad range of areas including optics, metamaterials, electrodynamics, microwaves, photonics, nano-optics, graphene photonics, imaging and sensing inspired by eyes of animal species, microwave and optical antennas, and physics and engineering of fields and waves.

He has received several awards for his research including the 2023 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Electrical Engineering, Election to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2023), Caltech Distinguished Alumni Award (2023), the 2020 Isaac Newton Medal and Prize from the Institute of Physics (UK), the 2020 Max Born Award from the OPTICA (formerly Optical Society), the 2019 Ellis Island Medal of Honor, the 2018 IEEE Pioneer Award in Nanotechnology, the 2022 Hermann Anton Haus Lecture at MIT, the 2015 SPIE Gold Medal, the 2014 Balthasar van der Pol Gold Medal from the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), the 2017 William Streifer Scientific Achievement Award, the Canadian Academy of Engineering as an International Fellow, the Fellow of US National Academy of Inventors (NAI), the IEEE Electromagnetics Award, the Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship Award from DoD, IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Distinguished Achievement Award, the Wheatstone Lecture in King’s College London, 2006 Scientific American Magazine 50 Leaders in Science and Technology, and the Guggenheim Fellowship. 

He is a Fellow of nine international scientific and technical organizations, i.e.,IEEE, OPTICA, APS, MRS, SPIE, URSI, AAAS, IOP and NAI.  He has received the honorary doctoral degrees from the Aalto University in Finland in 2016, the University of Stuttgart, Germany in 2016, and Ukraine’s National Technical University Kharkov Polytechnic Institute in 2017.
