Stepan Lucyszyn, is currently a Reader (Associate Professor) in Millimetre-wave Electronics and Director of the Centre for Terahertz Science and Engineering, at Imperial College London. After working in industry, as a satellite systems engineer for maritime and military communications, he spent 12 years researching microwave and millimetre-wave RFIC/MMICs. He co-edited a seminal book on RFIC/MMICs, published by the IEE in 2001. This book was translated into Chinese in 2007. For his contributions to RFIC/MMICs, he was made an Adjunct Professor at UESTC (Chengdu, China) in 2008.
Since 2001, Dr Lucyszyn has worked on RF MEMS. In 2004, he published a review paper on RF MEMS technology, which won an IEE Premium Award in 2005. He edited a book entitled Advanced RF MEMS, published by Cambridge University Press in 2010. For his contributions to RF MEMS, he was made a Guest Professor at Tsinghua University (Beijing, China) in 2008.
For over 18 years, Dr Lucyszyn has been working on millimetre-wave electronics and, since 2004, investigating the behaviour of materials, passive structures and ubiquitous applications at terahertz frequencies. In 2010, he was awarded the DSc degree (higher doctorate) of Imperial College for his contributions to Millimetre-wave and Terahertz Electronics.
Dr Lucyszyn has (co-)authored approximately 150 papers and 11 book chapters in applied physics and electronic engineering, and delivered many invited presentations at international conferences. In addition, he has served as a member of TPCs and prize committees for various international conferences. Over the past few years Dr Lucyszyn has reviewed numerous international research grant proposals and sat on European panels for the funding of research projects.
For 2002-05 he served as Editor-in-Chief of the Taylor and Francis International Journal of Electronics and from Nov. 2005 to Oct. 2009 an Associate Editor for the IEEE/ASME Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems. For 2010-12 he was a member of the EuMA General Assembly, representing Group 4 (UK, Ireland, Gibraltar, Malta), and Steering Committee. In 2011, Dr Lucyszyn was the Chairman of the 41st European Microwave Conference, held in Manchester (UK). In 2005, he was elected Fellow of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (UK) and Fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK), and in 2008 was invited as a Fellow of the Electromagnetics Academy (USA). He was an IEEE Distinguished Microwave Lecturer (DML) for 2010-12. Dr Lucyszyn is currently an Emeritus DML for 2013 and a newly appointed European Microwave Lecturer (EML) for the European Microwave Association. In 2013 he was elevated to Fellow of the IEEE (Class of 2014).
