    About Me

    B.S., 1989, Indian Institute of Technology
    M.S., 1992, Pennsylvania State University
    Ph.D., 1993, Pennsylvania State University

    Shanker Balasubramaniam received his B'Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India, in 1989, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in 1992 and 1993, respectively, from Pennsylvania State University.

    From 1993 to 1996, he was a research associate in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Iowa State University, where he worked on the molecular theory of optical activity. From 1996 to 1999, he was with the Center for Computational Electromagnetics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a visiting assistant professor, and from 1999-2002 with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Iowa State University as an assistant professor. He is currently a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan State University.

    He has authored/co-authored more than 350 journal and conferences papers, and presented a number of invited talks.

    He was an associate editor for IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters (AWPL), is an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, and is a full member of the USNC-URSI Commission B.

    He is a fellow of IEEE, elected for his contributions in computational electromagnetics. He has also been awarded the MSU Withrow Distinguished Junior Scholar (in 2003), Withrow Distinguished Senior Scholar (in 2010), and the Withrow Teaching Award (in 2007), as well as the Beal Outstanding Faculty Award (formerly MSU Distinguished Faculty Award) (2014).
