Short Bio

Ariel Epstein received the B.A. degree in computer science from the Open University of Israel, Ra’anana, Israel, in 2000, the B.A. degree in physics and the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, in 2003, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the same institution in 2013. From 2013 to 2016, he was a Lyon Sachs Post-Doctoral Fellow with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON, Canada. He is currently an Associate Professor with the Andrew and Erna Viterbi Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, where he has been leading the Modern Electromagnetic Theory and Applications (META) Research Group. His current research interests include utilization of electromagnetic theory, with an emphasis on analytical techniques, for the development of novel metasurface- and metagrating-based antenna and microwave devices, and investigation of new physical effects. Dr. Epstein was a recipient of the Young Scientist Best Paper Award in the URSI Commission B International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory (EMTS2013), held in Hiroshima, Japan, in May 2013. In 2020, he was chosen by the American Physical Society to be listed as an APS Outstanding Referee of the Physical Review journal family (lifetime award). From 2018 to 2021, he has served as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, where he is currently acting as a Track Editor.
