Prof. Dimitrios Peroulis received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor in 2003. He has been with Purdue University since August 2003 where he is currently leading a group of 18 graduate students on a variety of research projects in the areas of RF MEMS, sensing and power harvesting applications as well as RFID sensors for the health monitoring of sensitive equipment. He has been a PI or a co-PI in nearly 40 projects funded by government agencies and industry in these areas. He is currently a key contributor in two DARPA projects at Purdue focusing on 1) very high quality (Q>1,000) RF tunable filters in mobile form factors (DARPA Analog Spectral Processing Program, Phases I, II and III) and on 2) developing comprehensive characterization methods and models for understanding the viscoelasticity/creep phenomena in high-power RF MEMS devices (DARPA M/NEMS S&T Fundamentals Program, Phases I and II). Furthermore, he is leading the experimental program on the newly established $21M Center for the Prediction of Reliability, Integrity and Survivability of Microsystems (PRISM) funded by the National Nuclear Security Administration. In addition, he is leading the development of the MEMS technology in a U.S. Navy project (Marines) funded under the Technology Insertion Program for Savings (TIPS) program focused on harsh-environment wireless micro-sensors for the health monitoring of aircraft engines. He has over 110 refereed journal and conference publications in the areas of microwave integrated circuits and antennas. He received the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2008. His students have received numerous student paper awards and other student research-based scholarships. He has also won six outstanding teacher awards at Purdue University. In 2010 he also received the Eta Kappa Nu C. Holmes MacDonald Outstanding Teaching Award. This award identifies and gives national recognition to electrical engineering professors who have demonstrated, early in their careers, special dedication and creativity in their teaching responsibilities.
