Prof. Hakan Bagci Elevated to Senior Member of IEEE

Hakan Bagci is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Computer, Electrical, and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering. Previously, from 2007 to 2009, he worked as a Research Fellow at the Radiation Laboratory, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, US. He earned his master's and doctoral degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA, in 2003 and 2007, respectively. He received his bachelor's degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey in 2001. His research interests are in the field of theoretical and applied computational electromagnetics. He focuses on developing acceleration engines, preconditioning techniques, and hybridization methods, which render time and frequency domain integral equation solvers applicable to the analysis of electrically large and multi-scale real-world problems. Hakan Bagci is the recipient of the 2008 International Union of Radio Scientists (URSI) Young Scientist Award and the 2004-2005 Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship from the Computational Science and Engineering Department at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. His paper titled "Fast and rigorous analysis of EMC/EMI phenomena on electrically large and complex structures loaded with coaxial cables" was one of the three finalists (with honorable mention) for the 2008 Richard B. Schulz Best Transactions Paper Award given by the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society. He authored and co-authored five finalist papers in the student paper competitions at 2005, 2008, and 2010 IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposiums and 2013 Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society Conference.
