Short Bio

Prof. Leviatan received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from
the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, in 1977 and 1979,
respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Syracuse
University, Syracuse, NY, in 1982.
He spent the 1982/83 academic year as an Assistant Professor at Syracuse
University and subsequently joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at
the Technion, where at present he is a Professor and the incumbent of the Joseph
and Sadie Riesman Chair in Electrical Engineering. During his tenure at the
Technion he held short-term visiting positions at Cornell University, the Swiss
Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, the Catholic University of
America, the University d`Aix-Marseilles III, the University of Washington, Bell
Laboratories, the University of Michigan, Purdue University, and the University of
Illinois Urbana-Champaign. During 1989-1991, while on sabbatical leave from the
Technion, he was with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer
Science at The George Washington University as a Distinguished Visiting
Professor Leviatan`s research interests include computational methods applied to
antennas, electromagnetic wave scattering, and microwave as well as optical
guiding structures. He has published more than 100 journal papers and is listed
among ISI`s Highly Cited Researchers. He also presented numerous papers at
international symposia He is a recipient of the 2001 Henry Taub Prize for
Excellence in Research. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a member of Commission B
of the International Union of Radio Science.
