Afshin S. Daryoush has received three degrees in Electrical Engineering: a Bachelor of Science degree (in 1981) from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, a Master of Science degree (in 1984) and a Ph.D. (in 1986) from Drexel University, Philadelphia. After graduation he joined the faculty of Drexel University and was promoted to Full Professor in 1998. Professor Daryoush received a University Graduate Teaching Award in 2000 and has conducted research in microwave photonics for telecommunication, radar, and biomedical engineering applications, resulting in publication of over 200 technical papers and five book chapters. The recipient of the Microwave Prize for the 16th European Microwave Conference in Dublin, Ireland, Dr. Daryoush has also received Best Presentation awards in the 1986 and 1994 International Microwave Symposia. He lectured for the 1999 Second Summer School on "Optics Interaction with Microwave Circuits" in Autrans, France, and the 2002 NATO-sponsored LS-229 on "Optics Microwave Interactions" in France, Germany, and Hungary. He was a Summer Faculty Fellow from 1987-88 at the NASA-Lewis Research Center, Cleveland, and from 1989-90 at the Naval Air Development Center, Warminster. As part of his Sabbatical Leave Awards from Drexel University, he worked as a Visiting Scholar from 1996-97 at NTT Wireless Systems Laboratories, Yokosuka, Japan, and in 2005 at CNRS' Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics, and Nano-technologies (IEMN), Villeneuve d'Ascq, Lille, France. Dr. Daryoush has been awarded four US patents, one of which is licensed for commercialization. He has served as guest editor for the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory & Techniques, the Journal of Franklin Institute, and Microwave & Lightwave Technology Letters. He was elected as a Fellow of IEEE in 1998.
