Dr. Hao Xin is a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Physics at the University of Arizona. He is also an IEEE Fellow. His current teaching and research interests are on high frequency (from microwave to THz) technologies, including passive and active circuits, antennas, properties and applications of new materials such as metamaterials and nano-materials for wireless communication, sensing, bio-medical, and energy harvesting. In 2016, he co-founded and served as the CTO and president of Lunewave Inc. to commercialize 3D printed Luneburg lens antennas for automotive radar sensors. Before joining the University of Arizona, he worked as research scientist at Rockwell Scientific Company and as Sr. Principal Multidisciplinary Engineer at Raytheon Missile Systems. He has published over 350 refereed papers and over 20 patents in related research areas. He served as the general co-chair of the 8th International Antenna Technology Workshop and the general secretary of the 39th International Infrared, Millimeter Wave and THz Conference. He was an associate editor for IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters from 2012 to 2018. He is an associate editor for IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Magazine and IEEE Journal of Radio Frequency ID. He currently serves as the chair of the Young Professionals Committee of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society. He is also the Tucson joint chapter chair of IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques / Antennas and Propagation societies. Dr. Xin has current and previous research support (overall > $14M, individual expense > $8M) from DARPA, ARO, AFOSR, ONR, NSF, AFRL, and industry for his research on a broad range of topics related to microwave engineering. He has graduated and mentored 11 post-docs, 16 (including 6 visiting) PhD students, 10 MS students, and more than 60 undergraduate students. Currently he supervises 3 Post-Doc, 5 PhD students, 2 MS students and 2 undergraduate students.
