Juan M. Rius was Born in Barcelona, Spain, in 1963. He received the "Ingeniero de Telecomunicación'' degree in 1987 and the "Doctor Ingeniero'' degree in 1991, both from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain. In 1985 he joined the Electromagnetic and Photonic Engineering group at UPC, Department of Signal Theory and Communications (TSC), where he currently holds a position of "Catedrático'' (equivalent to Full Professor).
From 1985 to 1988 he developed a new inverse scattering algorithm for microwave tomography in cylindrical geometry systems. Since 1989 he has been engaged in the research for new and efficient methods for numerical computation of electromagnetic scattering and radiation. He is the developer of the Graphical Electromagnetic Computation (GRECO) approach for high-frequency RCS computation, the Integral Equation formulation of the Measured Equation of Invariance (IE-MEI) and the Multilevel Matrix Decomposition Algorithm (MLMDA) in 3D. Current interests are the numerical simulation of electrically large antennas and scatterers.
He has held positions of "Visiting Professor'' at EPFL (Lausanne) from May 1, 1996 to October 31, 1996; "Visiting Fellow'' at City University of Hong Kong from January 3, 1997 to February 4, 1997; "CLUSTER chair'' at EPFL from December 1, 1997 to January 31, 1998; and "Visiting Professor'' at EPFL from April 1, 2001 to June 30, 2001.
