Fernando L. Teixeira received his PhD in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1999. From 1999 to 2000, he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Since 2000 he has been with the Ohio State University (OSU), where he is now a Full Professor of Electrical Engineering.

His research areas of interest include computational physics, process tomography, radar systems, remote sensing, optics, and metamaterials. Since joining OSU, Dr. Teixeira has served as a Principal Investigator (PI) or co-PI on projects sponsored by the Department of Defense (DTRA, AFRL, AFOSR, ARO, MDA, NAVSEA), Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, NASA, and a number of industrial organizations. Dr. Teixeira has published over 180 journal papers in the aforementioned areas and is co-author of the textbook Radiowave Propagation: Physics and Applications (Wiley, 2010). He has advised or co-advised over 20 PhD graduates. Dr. Teixeira is a Fellow of the IEEE and a recipient of the CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation.
