Dr. Dimitris Anagnostou is a global point of reference in research on reconfigurable, autonomous and flexible antennas and antenna arrays. He received the B.S.E.E. degree from the Democritus University of Thrace, Greece, in 2000, and the M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, in 2002 and 2005, respectively. From 2005 to 2006, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Georgia Institute of Technology, GA, USA. In 2007, he joined as Assistant Professor the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, SD, USA, where he was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure. In 2016, he joined the Heriot Watt University, Institute of Signals, Sensors and Systems (ISSS), Edinburgh, UK as an Associate Professor. He has also worked at the Kirtland AFB, NM in 2011 as an AFRL Summer Faculty Fellow, and at the Democritus Univ. of Thrace, Greece as Assistant Professor. 

His interests include antennas, microwaves and electromagnetics with particular strengths in Applied Electromagnetics (Reconfigurable, autonomous and flexible Antennas and antenna arrays; analytical design methods and physical principles of antennas; slot antennas; electrically small antennas; metamaterial-inspired antenna arrays; radiating QR barcodes for anticounterfeiting and security applications; direct-write / inkjet printing of MEMS and passive RF components; high-frequency / RF electronics and microwave circuits; phase-change materials; electromagnetic materials (artificial dielectrics, artificial magnetic conductors, frequency selective surfaces); paper-electronics (eco-friendly ‘green’, organic); RF harvesters; MHz, THz, optical circuits and components).  Other topics of interest include MEMS; medical and digital image processing; biomedical applications of antennas and electromagnetics; artificial neural network applications in early cancer detection and in reconfigurable systems; sensors and robotics applications in electromagnetics; remote sensing; smart antennas and direction of arrival estimation; wireless signal propagation; and packaging.

Dr. Anagnostou serves or has served as Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation (2010-2016), the IEEE Access, and the IET Microwaves, Antennas and Propagation. He is Guest Editor for IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters, and IEEE Open Journal on Antennas and Propagation. He is member of the IEEE AP-S Educational Committee and vice-chair of the Online Content subcommittee, and member of the Technical Program Committee (TPC) for IEEE AP-S and EuCAP International Symposia. He has received the 2010 IEEE John D. Kraus Award by the IEEE APS Society, the DARPA Young Faculty Award by the U.S. Department of Defense, the 2014 Campus Star Award by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), the 2017 Young Alumni Award by the University of New Mexico, the European H2020 MSCA Individual Fellowship for wireless vital sign sensing technologies (Vision-RF), and four Honored Faculty Awards by SDSM&T. His students have also been recognized with IEEE and university awards (Engineering Prize at Heriot Watt University, Best PhD Thesis at South Dakota School of Mines, and others). He is a member of HKN Honor Society, ASEE, and of the Technical Chamber of Greece as a registered Professional Engineer (PE).
