Research Interests

Development of algorithms for electronic network synthesis, with special emphasis on procedures which exploit recent advances in computer hardware and software science. Areas of interest include symbolic manipulations of network functions, new numeric analysis techniques and algorithms for topological network synthesis, and a novel procedures for designing practical coupling networks that allows broadband power delivery to multiport loads, such as antenna arrays.
