Alumnus Hemmady Receives IEEE Outstanding Young Engineer Award


ECE Ph.D. alumnus Sameer Hemmady ('06) was awarded the IEEE Outstanding Young Engineer Award for 2011 by the IEEE Albuquerque, NM Chapter to recognize his work on reconfigurable stealth-antennas, counter-IED technologies and electromagnetic weapons design, as well as high power microwave (HPM) effects and active denial technologies.

The award banquet was held on the evening of May 16, 2011 at a dinner hosted by the IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Section and the IEEE Albuquerque chapter the University of New Mexico campus. The award was presented by Congressman Martin Heinrich (D-NM) who heads the subcommittee for Armed Forces Research and Development.

Dr. Sameer Hemmady is an applied physicist with over 7 years. experience in the planning, design, implementation and technical assessment of advanced directed energy weaponized systems. He has served as a program manager and principal investigator on several US Department of Defense programs pertaining to non-lethal directed energy weapons, counter-electronics and radar technologies. His technical expertise includes intentional electromagnetic interference and compatibility, low-observable phased array antennas, radar systems, Tera-Hertz and optical beam transport systems, and lasers. He is also a research professor in the Applied Electromagnetics group of the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at the University of New Mexico. Dr. Hemmady has authored one book on statistical electromagnetism, several journal papers and conference proceedings covering applied research in wave propagation, statistical electromagnetism, EMI/EMC and quantum-electronics. He holds a US patent on wave-imaging and a pending patent on reconfigurable low-observable stealth antennas. He currently serves as Senior Technical Lead Scientist for TechFlow Inc. During his time at University of Maryland, he was advised by Prof. Steven Anlage (PHY/ECE), Prof. Thomas Antonsen (ECE/PHY), and Prof. Edward Ott (ECE/PHY).
