Mohammod Ali

Professor, Department of Electrical Engineering
at the University of South Carolina at Columbia

Profile

Mohammod Ali received the B.Sc. degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, Dhaka, in 1987 and the M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees, both in electrical engineering, from the University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, Canada, in 1994 and 1997, respectively. From January 1998 to August 2001, he was with Ericsson Inc., Research Triangle Park, NC.
Since August 2001, he has been with the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of South Carolina at Columbia where currently he is a Professor. He had held appointment as a Visiting Research Scientist at Motorola, Plantation, FL, during June to August 2004. More recently in the summers of 2010 and 2011 Dr. Ali was a Faculty Fellow at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), Wright Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB). He also spent a year on sabbatical leave at the AFRL at WPAFB from 2013-2014. Dr. Ali is the recipient of the 2003 National Science Foundation Faculty Career Award. He is also the recipient of the College of Engineering and Computing Young Investigator Award, Research Progress Award and the Samuel Litman Distinguished Professor Award in 2006, 2009, and 2011 respectively. Prof. Ali was the Technical program Co-Chair of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society’s International Symposium in Charleston, SC in 2009. He was an Associate Editor of IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters from 2008-2013. He is the author/coauthor of over 180 publications and 8 US patents. He has given over 80 presentations and seminars at various conferences and other venues. His specific research interests are in the fields of: conformal antennas; reconfigurable antennas; 3D printing; metamaterials for ultra-thin antennas and EMI suppression and RF induced welding of structural composites. He has graduated 10 PhD and 8 MS students and is currently supervising 3 PhD and 2 MS students.
