Bio

Jorge R. Costa was born in Lisbon, Portugal, in 1974. He received the Licenciado and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Technical University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal, in 1997 and 2002, respectively.

He is currently a Researcher at the Instituto de Telecomunicações, Lisbon, Portugal. He is also an Associate Professor at the Departamento de Ciências e Tecnologias da Informação, Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (ISCTE-IUL). His present research interests include lenses, reconfigurable antennas, MEMS switches, UWB, MIMO and RFID antennas. He is the coauthor of four patent applications and more than 150 contributions to peer reviewed journals and international conference proceedings. More than thirty of these papers have appeared in IEEE Journals. Prof. Costa served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation from 2010 to 2016 and he was a Guest Editor of the Special Issue on “Antennas and Propagation at mm- and Sub mm-Waves”, from the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, April 2013. He was the Co-Chair of the Technical Program Committee of the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP 2015) in Lisbon and General Vice-Chair of EuCAP 2017 in Paris.
