Edl Schamiloglu was born in The Bronx, NY in 1959. He received the B.S. degree from the Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics Department at Columbia University, NY, in 1979; he received the M.S. degree in Plasma Physics from Columbia University in 1981; he received the Ph.D. degree in Engineering (minor in Mathematics) from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 1988 (dissertation advisor David A. Hammer, J.C. Ward Jr. Professor of Nuclear Energy Engineering). He joined the University of New Mexico (UNM) as Assistant Professor in 1988 and he is currently Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Associate Dean for Research and Innovation in the School of Engineering. He is also the Special Assistant to the Provost for Laboratory Relations. He lectured at the U.S. Particle Accelerator School (Harvard University in 1990 and at MIT in 1997). He coedited Advances in High Power Microwave Sources and Technologies (IEEE Press/Wiley, New York, NY, 2001) (with R.J. Barker), he has co-authored High Power Microwaves, 3rd Ed. (CRC Press, Boca Raton, FL, 2016) (with J. Benford and J. Swegle), and he is coediting Advances in High Power Microwave Sources and Technologies using Metamaterials (with J.W. Luginsland, J.A. Marshall, and A. Nachman) (IEEE Press/Wiley, New York, NY, 2021). He has co-authored over 170 refereed journal papers, over 270 reviewed conference papers, and 8 patents. His publications have been cited over 8000 times. His h-index is 38 and his i10-index is 141. He has been PI on over $35M of contracts and grants at UNM.
