Applied Electromagnetics, Antennas and Propagation.


Electromagnetic Inverse Problems, Electromagnetic Metasurfaces, and Electromagnetic Imaging.

Research description

Puyan Mojabi's research synergistically combines the areas of electromagnetic inverse problems and electromagnetic metasurfaces through its focus on two related research themes. The first theme develops systematic processes such that advanced metasurfaces can be designed from various forms of user-defined specifications. This aims to address the needs of future wireless communication systems. The second theme utilizes metasurfaces to enrich the information content of electromagnetic imaging data or to reduce the overall cost of the system. This can be used in various electromagnetic non-destructive testing applications.


Puyan Mojabi is a Professor and a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada. He is a recipient of the University of Manitoba's Falconer Emerging Researcher Rh Award for Outstanding Contributions to Scholarship and Research in the Applied Sciences category and two Excellence in Teaching Awards from the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Engineering as well as a University of Manitoba Graduate Students Association Teaching Award. He also received three Young Scientist Awards from the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), and has served as an Early Career Representative of URSI, and as the Chair of the IEEE Winnipeg Waves Chapter. His research is focused on electromagnetic inverse problems with applications in electromagnetic metasurface design and imaging.

Graduate Student Opportunities

Dr. Mojabi is currently seeking graduate students. There is a position for a full-time MSc or PhD student (preferred) with a background in applied electromagnetics.
