Marco A. Antoniades received the B.A.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Waterloo, ON, Canada, in 2001, and the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Toronto, ON, Canada, in 2003 and 2009, respectively. He is the Director of the Microwaves and Antennas Laboratory, a Founding Member of the EMPHASIS Research Centre, and a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Cyprus. He is also an Adjunct Fellow in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at The University of Queensland, Australia. He has authored over 70 refereed publications, and has coauthored three book chapters titled Transmission-Line Based Metamaterials in Antenna Engineering that appears in the Handbook of Antenna Technology (Springer, 2016), Antenna Applications of Negative Refractive Index Transmission-Line (NRI-TL) Metamaterials that appears in the Modern Antenna Handbook (Wiley, 2008) and Compact Planar Multiband Antennas for Mobile Applications that appears in Advancements in Microstrip and Printed Antennas (InTech, 2013). His research interests include passive and active antenna design, RF/microwave circuits and negative-refractive-index metamaterials for use in broadband wireless communications, biomedical devices and imaging, space/satellite applications, radio-frequency identification, and wireless power transfer. Dr. Antoniades is a Senior Member of the IEEE, a member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S), the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S), and the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP). He received the Hellenic Canadian Federation of Ontario Academic Excellence Award in 2003, and the Edward S. Rogers Sr. Graduate Scholarship from the University of Toronto during 2003–2004 and 2004–2005. He also received the First Prize in the Student Paper Competition at the 2006 IEEE AP-S International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation. During 2009–2011, he was the recipient of the Ontario Post-Doctoral Fellowship from the Ministry of Research and Innovation of Ontario. He has served as the joint conference chair of the 2015 Loughborough Antennas and Propagation Conference (LAPC), on the steering committee for the 2010 IEEE AP-S International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation, and serves regularly on the technical program committee for the IEEE AP-S International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation (APS/URSI), the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP), and the IEEE Radio and Wireless Symposium (RWS). He is currently a member of the IEEE AP-S Education Committee and is an Associate Editor of IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters (AWPL), and IET Microwaves, Antennas and Propagation (MAP).
