Webmaster : Simon Hemour
Simon Hemour (Member, IEEE) received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Grenoble, Grenoble, France, in 2004 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in optics, optoelectronics, and microwave engineering from the Grenoble Institute of Technology, Grenoble, France, in 2006 and 2010, respectively. In 2003, he was with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), Geneva, Switzerland, as a part of the Instrumentation Department, where he was involved with the ATLAS experiment on the Large Hadron Collided (LHC). From 2006 to 2007, he was a Research Assistant with the Pidstryhach Institute of Applied Problems of Mechanics and Mathematics (IAPMM), National Academy of Science of Ukraine (NASU), Lviv, Ukraine. In 2007, he joined the IMEP–LAHC MINATEC Laboratory, Grenoble, France. From 2011 to 2015, he was with the Poly-Grames Research Center, Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal, Montréal, QC, Canada, leading the wireless power transmission and harvesting research group Since 2015, he has been with University of Bordeaux, France, as an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering. His research interest include wireless power transfer and energy harvesting, ferrite-based RF circuits, nonlinear devices, innovative RF measurements, RF interferometry, low-power microwave, and millimeter-wave conversion circuits. Dr. Hemour is a member of the IEEE MTT-26 “Wireless Energy Transfer and Conversion” Technical Committee.
