About Sajjad Taravati
Sajjad Taravati (IEEE Senior Member) received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Polytechnique Montreal, Montreal, QC, Canada, in 2017. From 2007 to 2010, he was a Scientific Researcher with the Iran Telecommunication Research Center, Tehran, where he was involved in the design and practical implementation of novel telecommunication transceivers and electromagnetic wave propagation in wireless systems. Dr. Taravati was a full-time faculty member at Raja University, Ghazvin, Iran, from 2011 to 2013, where he was teaching various courses in telecommunication engineering for undergraduate students and supervising undergraduate theses. From 2013 to 2017, he was a Ph.D. Student and a Research Assistant at the Poly-Grames Research Center, Polytechnique Montreal, where he was conducting research on nonreciprocal magnetless electromagnetic systems and analog signal processing. From 2017 to 2018, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the group of Prof. Ahmed A. Kishk at the Concordia University, Montreal, Canada, where he was conducting research in the field of electromagnetics, nonreciprocity and space-time modulation. In Nov. 2018, Dr. Taravati joined the group of Prof. Eleftheriades at the University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, as a Postdoctoral Fellow. From 2020 to 2021, he was an Adjunct Professor at IKIU, Ghazvin, Iran, where he was teaching online courses in telecommunication engineering.
Dr. Taravati is currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He is also the Technical Advisor at LATYS Intelligence (latys.ca), a start-up company that is supported by the well-known start-up incubator TandemLaunch Inc. and is established based on two of Dr. Taravati’s research work and patents on versatile and programmable active metasurfaces. His current research interests include all fields of electromagnetic structures, electronic circuits, antennas, nonreciprocal magnetless systems, space–time-modulated structures, electronic circuits and systems, broadband phase shifters, wave engineering, airborne telecommunication transceivers, analysis and design of microwave active and passive circuits, radio modules, antennas, electromagnetic theory, invisibility cloaking, and active and nonreciprocal metasurfaces. Dr. Taravati received the Khwarizmi International Award in 2010 and the Outstanding Researcher Student Award of IUST in 2012. In 2018, he received the Horizon Postdoctoral Fellowship and the Graduate Student Award both from the Concordia University, Montreal. Dr. Taravati is elevated to the grade of IEEE Senior Member in 2021. He is a speaker of the 2021 Student Chapter of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, and speaker and organizer of a workshop at the 2021 IEEE International Microwave Symposium, Atlanta, GA, USA.
