Dr. Bedri Artug Cetiner began serving as Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Utah State University on August 1, 2007. He received the PhD Degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering from the Yildiz Technical University, Istanbul, in 1999. From November 1999 to June 2000 he was with the University of California, Los Angeles, as NATO science fellow. He then joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of California, Irvine, where he worked as a postdoctoral researcher and research specialist from June 2000 to June 2004. He then worked as an Assistant professor at Morehead State University in the Department of Space Science and Engineering from July 2004 until July of 2007. His research interest is focused on the analysis and design of microwave circuits and radio frequency microelectromechanical systems (RF MEMS). He is recently concentrating on the applications of RF MEMS to space science systems and new class of reconfigurable antennas for use in adaptive multi-input multi-output (MIMO) systems. He is the principal inventor of microwave laminate compatible RF MEMS technology. Dr. Cetiner is the recipient of the 1999 NATO scholarship given by The Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) for post-doctoral research. He is a member of IEEE Antennas and Propagation, Microwave Theory and Techniques, and Communication societies.
