Jasmin Grosinger (S’09–M’12–SM’19) received the Dipl.-Ing. (M.Sc.) degree (Hons.) in telecommunications and Dr.techn. (Ph.D.) degree (Hons.) from the Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, in 2008 and 2012. In January 2021, she received her Venia Docendi in radio frequency (RF) and microwave engineering from Graz University of Technology, Austria.
From 2008 to 2013, she was a Project Assistant with the Institute of Telecommunications, Vienna University of Technology, where she was involved in various projects dealing with radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies. In 2011, she was a Laboratory Associate with Disney Research, Pittsburgh, PA, USA, involved in an RFID sensor project. From 2013 to 2017, she was a Postdoctoral Researcher with the Institute of Microwave and Photonic Engineering, Graz University of Technology, focusing on RFID technologies research. In 2017, she was elevated to an Assistant Professor at the same institute, focusing on ultra-low-power RF components and systems. Since 2021, she has been an Associate Professor in this research field. In 2018, 2019, and 2021, she was a Guest Professor at the Institute of Electronics Engineering, Friedrich-Alexander-University (FAU) Erlangen-Nuremberg, Erlangen, Germany.
Prof. Grosinger has authored about 60 peer-reviewed publications and holds one US patent. She is actively involved in the Technical Program and Steering Committees of various RF-related conferences and is Associate Editor of the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters. She is a member of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S), the European Microwave Association, and the Union Radio-Scientifique Internationale Austria (Commission D). Within MTT-S, she serves as Distinguished Microwave Lecturer (Tatsuo Itoh DML class of 2022-2024), as a member of the IEEE MTT-S Technical Committees MTT-25 Wireless Power Transfer and Energy Conversion Committee and MTT-26 RFID, Wireless Sensors and IoT Committee, as IoT Working Group member of the Technical Coordination & Future Directions Committee, and as Co-Chair of the Women in Microwaves Sub-Committee of the Member and Geographic Activities Committee. In 2022, she will serve as MTT-S Secretary
Charlie Jackson has been active in a broad range of microwave and millimeter-wave technologies. After receiving his doctorate at UCLA, he worked at Hughes, TRW, Ditrans, Raytheon, and Northrop. While recovering from cancer, Charlie pursued a lifelong dream of designing and measuring the acoustical properties of woodwind musical instruments; he now uses 3D printing to make them. Dr. Jackson works at Northrop Grumman supporting space based programs. Charlie is a Fellow of the IEEE, has 5 patents and has published more than 30 articles. He has been active in IEEE chapter, section, conference, and society activities.
