Ramesh Abhari S’97–M’03–SM’07) received her Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada in 2003. She received her B.S. degree from Amirkabir University of Technology and M.S degree from Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran, both in Electrical Engineering. She joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, McGill University, Montreal, QC, Canada, as an Assistant Professor in June 2003 and became an Associate Professor in 2009. She has been a visiting Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering of Stanford University. She is currently with the department of Electrical Engineering of Santa Clara University, Santa Clara, California, USA, where she has developed undergraduate and graduate laboratories and courses in the area of Applied Electromagnetics, Antennas and Microwave Engineering. Dr. Abhari served as a member of the IEEE Press Editorial board from 2007-2013 and the chair of the IEEE Toronto Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTTS)/Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S)/Electromagnetic Compatibility Society (EMCS) joint chapter from 1998-2003. She is also the founder of the IEEE Montreal CPMT chapter. She has pioneered the application of electromagnetic bandgap structures (EBG) for suppression of the power/ground noise and use of substrate integrated waveguides (SIW) as bandpass high-speed interconnects. She has published more than 95 peer reviewed journal and conference papers, few of which received best student paper awards. Her current research interests include novel design of passive structures, microwave and mm-wave multi-antenna systems, EMC and signal and power integrity engineering.
