M.V. Kartikeyan (SM’03) received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in physics and electronics engineering from Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India, in 1985 and 1992, respectively.
He was a Research Scientist with the Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute, Pilani, India, from 1989 to 2001. He was with Institut für Hochleistungsimpuls-und Mikrowellentechnik, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Karlsruhe, Germany (1996, 1998-2000, 2001-2003, in summers during 2004-2008, 2011, 2012).
Kartikeyan joined the Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Roorkee, India, as an Associate Professor, in 2003, and elevated to Full-Professor in 2009. He worked as Head of the Institute Computer Center (January 2012- April 2014) and Head of the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (May 2013 – February 2016). At present, he is the Associate Dean (Faculty Affairs) and Head of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering.
Kartikeyan is the principal author of four books entitled: (i) Gyrotrons-High Power Microwave and Millimeter Wave Technology, (ii) Soft Computing Methods for Microwave and Millimeter Wave Design Problems, (iii) Fractal Apertures in Waveguides, Conducting Screens and Cavities-Analysis and Design, and (iv) Compact antennas for high data rate communications: Ultra-wideband (UWB) and Multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) technology (Springer, 2004/2012/2014/ 2017). His current research interests include millimeter/THz wave engineering (gyrotrons and other high power millimeter wave devices and components), metamaterials and fractals in RF domain, planar microstrip antennas and filters for communications, microwave integrated circuits, and RF and microwave design with soft computing techniques.
Kartikeyan is a Senior Member of IEEE, Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (UK), Institution of Electronics and Telecommunications Engineers (India), Institution of Engineers (India), and Vacuum Electronic Devices and Applications Society (India).
Kartikeyan is serving in the Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Infrared, Millimeter and Terahertz Waves (Springer-Nature Engineering Journal). He is the reviewer of IEEE Transactions (Electron Devices, Plasma Science), IET (Electronics Letters, Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation – MAP), EuMA International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies, Tylor & Francis IETE Journal of Research, and PIER (Progress In Electromagnetics Research).
Kartikeyan is a recipient of the Hildegard-Maier Research Fellowship for Electrical Sciences of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (1998-2000) and the Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship (2001-2003, 2011, 2012).
