Qi-Jun Zhangreceived the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada, in 1987. He was with Optimization Systems Associates Inc during 1988-1990. He joined the Department of Electronics, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada in 1990, where he is presently a Professor.
His research interests are microwave computer-aided design, neural-network and optimization methods for high-speed/high-frequency circuit design. He has authored or coauthored over 260 publications in the area. He authored Neural Networks for RF and Microwave Design (Artech House, 2000), coedited Modeling and Simulation of High-Speed VLSI Interconnects (Kluwer, 1994), and Simulation-Driven Design Optimization and Modeling for Microwave Engineering (Imperial College Press, 2013). He is an Associate Editor of the International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering and a member of the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, and the International Journal of Numerical Modeling.
Dr. Zhang is a Fellow of the IEEE, and a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering. He was the General Chair of the IEEE MTT-S International Conference on Numerical Electromagnetic and Multiphysics Modeling and Optimization held in Ottawa, Canada August 2015.
