YOUNES RA'DI

Younes Ra’di is a Research Assistant Professor in the Photonics Initiative of the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC). He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. (with honors) degrees both in electrical engineering from the University of Tabriz, Tabriz, Iran, in 2009 and 2011, respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree (with distinction) in Electrical Engineering, Radio Science, from Aalto University, Espoo, Finland, in 2015, under the supervision of Prof. Sergei Tretyakov. During his doctoral studies his research was mainly focused on bi-anisotropic particles, optimal materials for strong light-matter interactions, and functional metasurfaces. From Feb. 2016 to Sep. 2016, he was a postdoctoral research fellow in the group of Prof. Anthony Grbic at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, where he worked on Magnet-Free Nonreciprocal Metasurfaces and Tunable Metasurfaces. Before moving to ASRC, from Oct. 2016 to June 2018, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Metamaterials & Plasmonics Research Laboratory led by Prof. Andrea Aat The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, USA. 

Over the last few years, Dr. Ra’di has received several research awards, grants, and funding including Aalto ELEC Doctoral School Funding (2013-2015), HPY Research Foundation Grant (2013), Nokia Foundation Grant (two times in 2013 and 2014), and SAMSUNG Global Research Outreach (for three consecutive years starting from 2017). He has authored and co-authored several scientific contributions published in peer-reviewed journals and peer-reviewed conference proceedings. In particular, some of his papers have appeared in several high-impact journals including Physical Review Letters (Featured in Physics and Selected as Editor’s Suggestion), Physical Review X (Featured in Physics and Selected as Editor’s Suggestion), ACS Photonics, and IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation. Some of his recent research works have been picked up by international media outlets.
