Biography: Zhongxiang Shen received the B. Eng. degree from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China, in 1987, the M. S. degree from Southeast University, Nanjing, China, in 1990, and the PhD degree from the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, in 1997, all in electrical engineering.
From 1990 to 1994, he was with Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China. He was with Com Dev Ltd., Cambridge, Canada, as an Advanced Member of Technical Staff in 1997. He spent six months each in 1998, first with the Gordon McKay Laboratory, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, and then with the Radiation Laboratory, the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, as a Postdoctoral Fellow. In Jan. 1999, he joined Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, as an assistant professor, where he is currently a Full Professor in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Dr. Shen served as Chair of the IEEE MTT/AP Singapore Chapter in 2009. From Jan. 2010 to Aug. 2014, he was the Chair of IEEE AP-S Chapter Activities Committee. From July 2014 to December 2018, he was the Secretary of IEEE AP-S. He is currently serving as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation.
Prof. Shen is an IEEE Fellow. His research interests include the design of small and planar antennas for various wireless communication systems, analysis and design of frequency-selective structures and absorbers, hybrid numerical techniques for modeling RF/microwave components and antennas. He has authored more than 200 journal papers (among them 150 were published in IEEE Journals) and also presented more than 180 conference papers.
Prof. Shen’s distinguished lectures are on the following topics:
- "Absorptive Frequency-Selective Structures."
- "Design of Compact and Wide-Band Antennas."
- "Conformal Wide-Band End-Fire Antennas of Low Profile."
