Biography

Hilal M. El Misilmani was born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1987. He received the B.E degree in communications and electronics engineering from Beirut Arab University, Debbieh, Lebanon, in 2010 and the M.E and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the American University of Beirut, Beirut, Lebanon, in 2012 and 2015 respectively.

From Aug. 2011 to Sept. 2012, he was a Telecommunications Engineer with Dar Al-Handasah Consultants (Shair and Partners). From Sept. 2012 to Aug. 2014, he was a Researcher with Beirut Research and Innovation Center. From Sept. 2014 to May 2015 he was a Lecturer with the American University of Beirut. From June 2015 to Sept 2016, he was a Research Associate with the American University of Beirut. Since Sept. 2015, he has been an Assistant Professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Beirut Arab University, Debbieh, Lebanon. He has more than 25 publications. His research interests include the design of high power microwave antennas, slotted waveguide antennas and vlasov antennas, the design antennas for biomedical applications, reconfigurable antennas, and the design of antennas using machine learning.

Dr. El Misilmani was a recipient of several scholarships: Rafic Hariri Foundation Scholarship from Sept. 2005 to June 2010, the Association of Specialization and Scientific Guidance (SSG) Scholarship from Feb 2006 to June 2010, the Lebanese Association for Scientific Research (LASeR) scholarship from Sept. 2013 to May 2015, and the National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS) doctoral scholarship award from 2013 to May 2015.
