Professor Jiasheng Hong received the D.Phil. degree in engineering science from the University of Oxford, UK, in 1994. His doctoral dissertation concerned EM theory and applications. In 1994, he joined the University of Birmingham, UK, where he was involved with microwave applications of high temperature superconductors, EM modeling, and circuit optimization. In 2001, he joined the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK, and is currently a professor leading a team for research into advanced RF/microwave device technologies.
He has authored and coauthored over 200 journal and conference papers, and also two books, Microstrip Filters for RF/Microwave Applications (New York: Wiley, 1st Edition 2001, 2nd Edition 2011) and RF and Microwave Coupled-Line Circuits, Second Edition (Boston: Artech House, 2007). His current interests involve RF/microwave devices, such as antennas and filters, for wireless communications and radar systems, as well as novel material and device technologies including multilayer circuit technologies using package materials such as liquid crystal polymer, RF MEMS, ferroelectric and high temperature superconducting devices. He has served as the Subject Editor (microwaves) for IET Electronics Letters, the Associate Editor for IEEE Trans. Microwave Theory and Techniques, IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation, and Wiley International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering.
