Education: Dr. Anagnostou has dedicated a large amount of his time developing course handouts and providing excellent education to graduate and undergraduate students in the areas of Antennas, Electromagnetics, and Circuits. His teaching approach is a combination of mathematical and hands-on active learning of why and how things happen versus strict memorization, and helps students build a solid foundation of knowledge that will serve them for a lifetime.
Research: Dr. Anagnostou is a global point of reference in research on reconfigurable, autonomous and flexible antennas and arrays. He has over 100 journal and conference publications, 2 patents (one pending), 1 book chapter, and more than 890 citacions of his work. His interests include antennas, microwaves and electromagnetics with particular strengths in:
Applied Electromagnetics: Reconfigurable, autonomous and flexible Antennas and antenna arrays; analytical design methods and physical principles of antennas; slot antennas; electrically small antennas; metamaterial-inspired antenna arrays; radiating QR barcodes for anticounterfeiting and security applications; direct-write / inkjet printing of MEMS and passive RF components; high-frequency / RF electronics and microwave circuits; phase-change materials; electromagnetic materials (artificial dielectrics, artificial magnetic conductors, frequency selective surfaces); paper-electronics (eco-friendly 'green', organic); RF harvesters; MHz, THz, optical circuits and components.
Other topics: MEMS, medical and digital image processing; biomedical applications of antennas and electromagnetics; artificial neural network applications in early cancer detection and in reconfigurable systems; sensors and robotics applications in electromagnetics; remote sensing; smart antennas and direction of arrival estimation; wireless signal propagation; DoA (Direction-of Arrival) estimation; packaging.
