"The way to be successful in the software world is to come up with breakthrough software, and so whether it's Microsoft Office or Windows, its pushing that forward. New ideas, surprising the marketplace, so good engineering and good business are one in the same."
RÃ©mi sarkis was born in Lebanon in 1982. He received in 2005 a Diploma in Electric, Electronics, Telecommunication and Computer Engineering, from the Lebanese University - Faculty of Engineering (ULFG2).
In 2006, he accomplished a Master's degree in science at the University of GÃ¤vleâ€“Sweden, with a specialization in microwave and telecommunication. He carried out an internship at The Catholic University of Louvain Belgium, in collaboration with the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory (DRAO) of NRC in Canada. His research there has been carried out in the framework of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope project, and consisted of studying a technology based on wideband phased-arrays used for focal plane applications.
In December 2011, R. Sarkis obtained a PhD in Applied Electromagnetics from the UniversitÃ© catholique de Louvain. His research interests are fast numerical methods for electromagnetic fields in finite periodic structures and multi-band antenna array analysis and design.
In upcoming issues, many projects will be featured on this website, here are the main titles:
- 2011-2012 European Defense Agency project ICAR: Development and manufacturing of circular array of wideband antennas for the localization of intruders.
- 2009-2011 AFAD project of NRC, Canada: Simulation and development of large array of three dimensional taper slot antennas for Square Kilometre Array (SKA).
- 2009-2010 Ground Penetration Radar (GPR) project: Design and manufacturing of wideband antenna array for the identification of different subsurface layers.
- 2008-2010 Researcher for Northern Cross Radio Telescope (NCRT) Project: Electromagnetic modeling and analysis of infinite linear array of wide-band antenna.
- 2006-2008 European Project STARRS: Design and manufacturing of triple band antenna arrays suitable for helicopter and pedestrian search and rescue missions.
