Vicente E. Boria (S’91-A’99-SM’02) was born in Valencia, Spain May 18, 1970. He received his “Ingeniero de Telecomunicación” degree (with honors) and the “Doctor Ingeniero de Telecomunicación” degree from the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Valencia, Spain, in 1993 and 1997, respectively.
In 1993 he joined the “Departamento de Comunicaciones”, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, where he served as an Assistant Lecturer (1993-1995), Lecturer (1996- 1997), and Associate Professor (1998-2002), and now he is Full Professor (since 2003). In 1995 and 1996, he was holding a Spanish Trainee position with the European Space Research and Technology Centre, European Space Agency (ESTEC-ESA), Noordwijk, The Netherlands, where he was involved in the area of EM analysis and design of passive waveguide devices. He has authored or co-authored 5 chapters in technical textbooks, 50 papers in refereed international technical journals, and over 150 papers in international conference proceedings. His current research interests are focused on the analysis and automated design of passive components, left-handed and periodic structures, as well as on the simulation and measurement of power effects in passive waveguide systems.
Dr. Boria has been a member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (IEEE MTT-S) and the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (IEEE AP-S) since 1992. He is member of the Editorial Boards of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters, Proceeding of the IEE (Microwaves, Antennas and Propagation), IEE Electronics Letters and Radio Science. He is also a member of the Technical Committees of the IEEE-MTT International Microwave Symposium and of the European Microwave Conference. He was the recipient of the 1993 First National Prize of Telecommunication Engineering Studies (“Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia”). He was also the recipient of the 2001 Social Council of Universidad Politécnica de Valencia First Research Prize for his outstanding activity during the period 1995-2000.
