Office: TSRB 512
Microwave Circuit Technology Group
John Papapolymerou received the B.S.E.E. degree from the National Technical University of Athens, Athens, Greece, in 1993, the M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1994 and 1999, respectively. From 1999-2001, he was an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Arizona, Tucson, and during the summers of 2000 and 2003, he was a visiting professor at The University of Limoges, France. From 2001-2005 and 2005-2009, he was an Assistant Professor and Associate Professor, respectively, at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he was the Ken Byers Professor until his departure from Georgia Tech in 2015 to serve as the ECE department head at Michigan State University. He has authored or coauthored over 340 publications in peer-reviewed journals and conferences. His research interests include the implementation of micromachining techniques and MEMS devices in microwave, millimeter-wave and THz circuits and the development of both passive and active planar circuits and antennas on semiconductor (Si/SiGe, GaAs) and organic substrates (liquid crystal polymer-LCP, LTCC) for System-on-a-Chip (SOC)/ System-on-a-Package (SOP) RF front ends.
Dr. Papapolymerou currently serves as Editor-in-Chief for IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters (MWCL). He has also served as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques from 2010-2012, and as Chair for Commission D of the US National Committee of URSI from 2009-2011. He was also Associate Editor for IEEE MWCL (2004-2007), and IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation (2004-2010). During 2004, he was the Chair of the IEEE MTT/AP Atlanta Chapter. He was the recipient of the 2012 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) H.A. Wheeler Prize Paper Award, the 2010 IEEE AP-S John Kraus Antenna Award, the 2009 IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques-Society (MTT-S) Outstanding Young Engineer Award, the 2009 School of ECE Outstanding Junior Faculty Award, the 2004 Army Research Office (ARO) Young Investigator Award, the 2002 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award, the best paper award at the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Technology (ICMMT2002), Beijing, China, and the 1997 Outstanding Graduate Student Instructional Assistant Award presented by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), The University of Michigan Chapter. His students have also been recipients of several awards including the Best Student Paper Award presented at the 2004 IEEE Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems, the 2007 IEEE MTT-S Graduate Fellowship, and the 2007/2008 and 2008/2009 IEEE MTT-S Undergraduate Scholarship/Fellowship. He is a Fellow of IEEE.
