Victor M. Lubecke (S’86 – M’86 – SM’98) received M.S. (’90) and Ph.D. (’95) degrees in Electrical Engineering from the California Institute of Technology, and a B.S.E.E. degree from the California State Polytechnic Institute, Pomona (’86). He is currently a Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Hawaii, Manoa, in Honolulu Hawaii. Dr. Lubecke has held previous appointments with Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies (’98 – ’03), the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) (’87 – ’96), and the Institute for Physical and Chemical Research (RIKEN), Sendai, Japan (’96 – ’98), where his research involved microwave, terahertz, and MEMS technologies for remote sensing and communications. He holds six U.S. patents with several more pending, and has published over 150 peer-reviewed research articles. Prof. Lubecke is an emeritus Distinguished Microwave Lecturer (’06 – ’08) of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, a member of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology and Electron Devices societies, and serves on Technical and Steering Committees for various IEEE and SPIE symposia. He was co-recipient of the Emerging Technology Award at TechConnect 2007, and co-founded and served as CTO for a start-up company that is now Kai Medical, in Honolulu, HI. His current research interests include remote sensing technologies, biomedical sensors, MEMS, heterogeneous integration, and microwave/terahertz radio.
